Federal Service for Supervision in the Sphere of Natural Resource Usage (Rosprirodnadzor) has approved the Conclusion on Safety of International Public Environment Expertise for Power Unit 1 and Power Unit 2, which are currently under construction at the Leningrad NPP. The Conclusion on Safety is valid for ten years.
The Conclusion was submitted for the state expert review in May, 2016.
Inter-Regional Public Environment Organization “Green Cross” jointly with independent experts from Finland, Hungary, Belarus, Kazakhstan and Armenia analyzed the materials substantiating the license for implementation of activities in the field of use of atomic energy, that is, for operation of the Leningrad NPP power units that are currently under construction.
The specialists confirmed that the previously completed assessment of the impact on all components of the environment is comprehensive, and that the authenticity of assessments of environmental risk during normal operation, design and beyond design basis accidents is confirmed in the frame of materials substantiating the license, whereas the design of VVER-1200 reactor plant thoroughly complies with nuclear, radiation, and ecological safety requirements.
Upon undergoing the state environmental review the materials substantiating the license will allow to receive Rostekhnadzor licenses for operation of the Leningrad NPP Power Units 1 and 2 under construction.
