Rosenergoatom: the electric power output by Russian NPPs has increased by over 8% in April 2020

The electric power output produced by Russian NPPs (affiliate companies of the Rosenergoatom Joint-Stock Company, a part of the Rosatom State Corporation’s Electric power division) in April accounted for 16.514 billion kWh (compared to 15.276 billion kWh during the same period of 2019). That said, the nuclear power plants have increased their joint output by 8.1%.

In total, since the beginning of 2020, all Russian NPPs have delivered around 73 billion kWh, which is 101.13% of the balance set by the Federal Antimonopoly Service (as of May 7, 2020). The installed capacity utilization factor is around 79%.

It is important to note that back in 2019, the Russian NPPs set another record in terms of the produced electric power, growing the total output up to 208.8 billion kWh (compared to 204.3 billion kWh a year before).

The Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS) set a plan for the Russian NPPs to deliver 207.614 billion kWh in 2020.

The atomic generation accounts for 19% of the total electric power output in the country. That said, each fifth light bulb in the Russian Federation is powered by a nuclear NPP.
