Innovative Reactor Reached 100% Capacity

Beloyarsk NPP Unit 4 with a BN-800 fast reactor (a prototype for tomorrow’s more powerful fast neutron reactors for commercial use) reached its nominal capacity for the first time.

This marks the beginning of comprehensive tests required to put it in commercial operation, which is scheduled to begin this autumn. Since the beginning of the year, Unit 4 has generated over 1.3 billion kWh of power.
