Russia’s Atommash has completed the welding of the lower half of the reactor pressure vessel for one of the two new units at the Kursk 2 nuclear power station under construction in western Russia, which will be the first to use the Generation III+ VVER-TOI design.

Atommash, part of Atomenergomash, the engineering division of state nuclear corporation Rosatom, said the weld would now be inspected and anti-corrosion coating added. It did not say which of the two Kursk units the RPV was for, but it is likely to be Kursk 2-1.

The VVER-TOI reactor technology is being used for Kursk 2-1 and Kursk 2-2. It was developed from the 1,200 MW AES-2006 pressurised water reactor.

Construction of Kursk 2-1 began in April 2018 and of Kursk 2-2 in April 2019.
