Trial process of charging the simulation zone of the reactor is ongoing at the first power unit of the LNPP under construction, which aims to provide hot and cold run-in. To do this, specialists use the simulators of fuel assemblies.

Specialists of the First Unit of JSC «MSU-90» are currently pre-assembling two reactor circulating pump sets (RCPSs) near the reactor building of the second power unit of the LNPP under construction.

Titan-2 has signed project-specific contracts on the construction of site offices and social spaces on the Hanhikivi-1 site.

In the framework of the international project of the state Corporation "Rosatom" for construction of nuclear power plants "Hanhikivi 1" Sosnovy Bor was visited by journalists from major Finnish media companies "Helsingin Sanomat", "Yle Moscow", "Raahen Seutu Alma Media", as well as by the representatives of press services of the companies-partners "Project RAOS Oy" and "Fennovoima".

At the construction site of new power units of the Leningrad NPP the guests met with the Director of the nuclear power station Vladimir Pereguda. The journalists asked the head of the company about the safety of the project, the timing of its commissioning, the storage of spent nuclear fuel.

During the tour of the construction site, the media representatives saw evaporative cooling towers, a 330 kV switchgear, visited the turbine hall in the turbine building. Experts of LNPP, and General contractor JSC "CONCERN TITAN-2" answered the questions regarding the project and the progress of the construction work asked by the guests. Then in the office of holding "TITAN-2" journalists discussed some issues of building of the nuclear power plant "Hanhikivi 1" in Northern Finland. JSC "CONCERN TITAN-2" is the main participant in this project.

Executive Director of JSC "CONCERN TITAN-2" Maxim Lokhman made a presentation of the Company for the guests. Director of the program for the construction of  "Hanhikivi 1" NPP, Alexander Tupitsyn, told about the work that is under way at the site of the Finnish nuclear power station.

The journalists were interested in the cooperation between the Russian contractor and company "Fennovoima", and if the work thoroughly conforms to the principles of the strict Finnish laws. Currently this cooperation is being successfully developed and a constructive dialogue has established between the Russian and Finnish colleagues. Works on site of the "Hanhikivi 1" NPP are becoming large-scale: dredging is ongoing, and the first of auxiliary facilities are already being erected.

Note:

The Holding “Titan-2” is the largest in the North-West group of companies, erecting the most important objects of the nuclear industry and energy. The organization performs a full range of construction and installation works from engineering to commissioning.

The Holding “Titan-2” is one of the main contractors for the construction of power units No. 1 and No. 2 of the Leningradskaya NPP-2. Main organizations of the company perform 30% of general construction and 80% of installation works on the site. Specialists of the holding are engaged on the objects of the Leningradskaya NPP-2 first and second power units. The works are being performed in the buildings of the reactor, turbine, electricity, water, heating system and other structures of power units.

Installation and tensioning of internal containment tendon strands is under way in the reactor building of the first power unit of LNPP under construction. The strands are laid into special openings called tendon sheathing and go around the inner containment in vertical and horizontal directions.

An educational and production center for the nuclear industry SRO was completed on the basis of the holding "TITAN-2". It is the third, "Northwest", branch of the "Professional Training Center for Employees of Construction Sector of the Nuclear Industry" (NOU DPO “UCPR”).

Specialists of the Second Unit of JSC «MSU-90» are completing equipment installation in the switch chamber at the construction site of the new power units of the Leningrad nuclear power plant.

JSC «SEM» wiremen conduct large-scale operations inside the reactor building of the first power unit of the LNPP under construction. The main task is to provide the voltage supply to the reactor circulating pumps and the commissioning of supporting systems of the reactor.

Large-scale commissioning operations are being conducted at the Leningrad nuclear power plant. They require full power supply. Therefore, a key task for the experts from JSC «SEM» is providing auxiliary power supply from 330 kV network.
