Nuclear reactors for NPPs
Academician N.A. Dollezhal, the first director of NIKIET pioneered the new concept of pressure tube reactors, one of the reactor types built in USSR.
Reactors of Obninsk, Beloyarsk, Siberian and Ignalina NPPs have been decommissioned up to now.
Eleven RBMK reactors at three NPPs (Leningrad, Kursk and Smolensk) generate almost the half of "nuclear" electricity of Russia.
Innovative pressure tube reactors
Innovative solutions and approaches for pressure tube reactors such as VGERS and BKR are developed for NPPs with water supercritical parameters.
