Leningrad NPP: since its connection to the power grid, power unit No. 6 has generated more than 5 billion kilowatt-hour of electricity

5 billion 500 million kilowatt-hour of electricity was generated and delivered to the unified energy system of Russia by the innovative power unit No. 6 of the Leningrad NPP in the 9 months that have passed since its first connection to the power grid in October 2020. This amount of electricity is enough to supply 1.5 million families of three throughout the year.
Operating steadily and safely, the new unit generates about 28 million kilowatt-hour of electricity per day and meets the electricity needs of millions of families and several thousand industrial enterprises, medical institutions, schools, social and cultural facilities, etc.
According to the director of the Leningrad NPP, Vladimir Pereguda, thanks to the construction and commissioning of replacement capacities, the enterprise continues to maintain a leading position in the production of electricity in the region. “We as normal reliably provide electricity to more than half of the consumers in the Northern Capital and the Leningrad Region and a third of the consumers in the North-West Federal District. Almost 5 million people in the household and industrial segment live comfortably and work efficiently thanks to the electricity supplied from our enterprise,” said Director of the Leningrad NPP Vladimir Pereguda.
Let us recall that the launch operations at the sixth unit began exactly a year ago, on July 19, 2020. On that day, the nuclear scientists loaded the first fuel assembly with fresh nuclear fuel into the reactor, giving the start to the physical start-up of the unit. Over the next eight months, the new nuclear giant successfully passed all mandatory inspections and tests with a phased increase in power to 100% and was put into commercial operation on March 22, 2021.
Today, power units No. 4, 5 and 6 of the Leningrad NPP are in operation. They carry a total load of 3230 MW. The third power unit is still under scheduled repair. Power units No. 1 and No. 2 were shut down in 2018 and 2020 and are in no generation mode for further decommissioning.
