Yerevan considering conventional reactors and SMRs About a quarter of Armenia’s electricity is generated at the Armenian-2 reactor. The International Atomic Energy Agency is ready to help Armenia in realising its future nuclear energy plans, the agency’s director-general Rafael Grossi said during his two-day visit to the country.

Grossi and Armenian president Vahagn Khachaturyan discussed the importance of strengthening Armenia’s nuclear sector in view of the country’s plans to extend the lifetime of its Armenian-2 nuclear power plant and its considerations in building a new conventional reactor or a small modular reactor (SMR).

Today, a quarter of Armenia’s electricity is generated at the Armenian-2 reactor, the country’s only operational commercial nuclear plant.

The 415-MW pressurised water reactor unit, supplied by Russia, was reconnected to the national grid at the end of 2021 after a major retrofitting and refurbishment programme carried out by Russian state nuclear corporation Rosatom.
