Rosenergoatom, the largest national generating company, is operator of all Russian nuclear power plants. It provides more than 40% of electricity in the European part of the country. In the past 15 years, Russian NPPs did not have a single incident that would be classed above Level 2 on International Nuclear Event Scale (INES). In 2019, Russian NPPs produced 208.784 bln kWh of electricity (204.275 bln kWh in 2018) or 19.04% of the country’s total generation of electricity.
Capacity factor of the plants has increased (80.41% in 2019 vs 79.87% in 2018). Currently, capacity factor of domestic NPPs is up to that of the best-performing international peers, and has been at a level of about 85% since the beginning of 2015.
