Lead Story
With our own eyes
The third power unit of Rostov nuclear power plant is planned to start up before the end of this year. Now, the site is getting ready for the main phase of the reactor hot trials. By nuclear construction standards the start-up of Unit 4 of the plant will happen rather soon, in 2017. Therefore, the work doesn’t stop for a single minute there. Now, we offer most recent pictures of the construction site.
