Russia has completed tests of all four of the main circulation pumps at unit 1 of the Novovoronezh II nuclear power plant under construction. Novovoronezh II is the lead project for the deployment of the AES-2006 design incorporating a Gidropress-designed pressurized water reactor, an evolutionary development from the VVER-1000. Construction of Novovoronezh II units 1 and 2, also known as Novovoronezh units 6 and 7, began in June 2008 and July 2009, respectively. Unit 6 is scheduled to start commercial operation in February 2018.
