Rosenergoatom: During the 11 months of 2016, the Russian NPPs have delivered 1 billion kilowatt-hours of electric power more than planned

The total electric power output delivered by all the Russian NPPs (the Rosenergoatom Concern’s affiliate companies) during the 11 months of 2016 has exceeded 177.12 billion kilowatt-hours.

At the moment, the electric power output exceeds the Federal Anti-Monopoly Service’s balance of 176 billion kilowatt-hours by over 1.12 billion kilowatt-hours.

That said, the electric power output during the period of January – November 2016 has already surpassed the same parameter of the previous year, which was 176.92 billion kilowatt-hours.

Since early 2016, the installed capacity utilization factor has reached 81.95%.

It is important to note that last year the Russian NPPs’ output set the record throughout the whole history of the Russian nuclear power industry with the electric power output exceeding 195 billion kilowatt-hours (compared to 180.5 billion kilowatt-hours in 2014), with the share of nuclear generation in the whole power balance in Russia growing to be 18.6% compared to 17.2% in 2014.

As of now, the total installed capacity of all 35 power blocks operated by the Russian NPPs is 27,127 gigawatt.

The Rosenergoaton Concern (the power division of the Rosatom State Corporation) includes 10 Russian nuclear power stations bearing the status of the Concern’s affiliate companies, along with the vendors catering for the needs of the generation company. All in all, the 10 nuclear power stations operate 35 power blocks* (*excluding the Novovoronezh NPP’s 6th power block (The Novovoronezh NPP-2 1st one) being at the pilot production stage): 18 of them operate VVER reactors (12 VVER-1000 power blocks and 6 VVER-440 power blocks of different modifications); 15 of them with channel reactors (11 power blocks with RMBK-1000 reactors, four power blocks with EGP-6 reactors); and 2 power blocks with fast neutron sodium cooling reactors (BN-600 and BN-800).
