Representatives of more than 20 foreign mass media companies from Bangladesh, Hungary, Germany, Lithuania, Poland, Ukraine and Belarus have visited Belarusian NPP.
The journalists were given a chance to familiarize themselves with the progress of construction of the first Belarusian Nuclear Power Plant. In particular, the representatives of mass media companies visited the site designed for layout of the gas insulated switchgear GIS -330, from which during operation electrical energy will be supplied to the Unified Energy System of the Republic of Belarus. Besides, the Main Control Room was demonstrated to the journalists, to which all the information on generation and distribution of electric energy from operating power units will be provided. In addition, the representatives of the mass media companies visited the Training Center, where currently the personnel of Belarusian NPP maintenance services is being trained, as well as the site for construction of the tower evaporative cooling towers designed for water cooling.
«We have demonstrated the degree of readiness of the facilities under construction, - Vitaly Polyanin, Vice President - temporarily in charge of the Belarusian NPP Construction Project Manager of ASE mentioned. - Currently thermal installation and electrical installation works are being performed in the main facilities of start-up complexes in Belarusian NPP power units under construction. All the stages are being implemented according to the directive schedule”.
The first Nuclear Power Plant in the Republic of Belarus is being constructed according to the Russian 3+ generation design that fully complies with the safety related international standards and recommendations of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). The project envisages erection of two power units equipped with VVER-1200 reactors.
ASE (the Engineering Division of ROSATOM) was established by merging of the leading companies of the industry: JSC ASE EC, JSC Atomstroyexport, JSC Atomenergoproekt and JSC ATOMPROEKT. ASE is one of the global leaders in nuclear power engineering business holding 31% of the global NPP construction market. Its representative offices, branches and front offices are operating in the territories of 15 countries. Almost 90% of the order portfolio are accounted for overseas projects. It implements designing and construction projects for high-power NPPs, RAW and SNF management facilities, thermal power facilities and provides the full range of EPC, EPC(M) and PMC services for any complex engineering facilities.
ASE develops and actively implements the innovative Multi-D project management system in the area of complex engineering facilities construction that allows such parameters as budget, deadlines and quality to be managed more efficiently.
