Russia’s Titan-2 is to build two new units with VVER-TOI reactors at the Smolensk-II NPP by 2032 and 2034. Smolensk-II will be built 6 km away from the Smolensk NPP which comprises three RBMK reactors, nearing the end of their design life. According to the roadmap, the preparatory phase of construction is a long, but extremely important, said Sergey Gromov, Deputy Director of the Smolensk NPP. “Only three years are allotted for the formation of project documentation. It will be a library of multi-volume publications, because a project is needed for each facility on the plant site. There will be almost 200, large and small.”

Russia’s NA Dollezhal Scientific Research & Design Institute of Power Engineering (Nikiet - part of Rosatom) has completed the preliminary design of a research molten-salt reactor for the Mining & Chemical Combine (MCC) in Krasnoyarsk as part of a Russia-wide research effort. The draft design is for a reactor plant with an innovative research reactor which uses a circulating molten fuel salt (IZhSR). The work was carried out in cooperation with the National Research Centre Kurchatov Institute and a number of Rosatom enterprises. A detailed R&D programme was drawn up and approved by Rosatom, which will substantiate the design’s technical solutions, then build and put into operation the IZhSR reactor plant at MCC.
