WWER Reactors

Rostov NPP:

OAO Nizhny Novgorod Engineering Company Atomenergoproekt (NIAEP), which has designed and operated Units 1 and 2 of the Rostov NPP, is the general contractor for the design of Rostov 3 and 4.

The Rostov NPP is from a series of unified NPP designs with VVER-1000 meeting the requirements of mass construction. These are series VVER units with the V-320 reactor, enhanced PGV-1000M steam generators and an electrical capacity of up to 1,100 MW each. That is, Rostov will have units with VVER-1000 (V-320) reactors similar to the existing ones.

Preparatory work prior to the full-scale construction of Units 3 and 4 were begun in the middle of 2009.

The construction of Unit 3 was begun in November 2009.

The full-scale construction of Unit 4 was begun in June 2010.⁠
