For the TITAN-2 holding, this unit became the second power unit with a VVER-1200 reactor that was built without subcontracting. The company is the general contractor for construction of the two new units of the Leningrad NPP. The first one has been successfully operating for more than two years. The second one has generated around 2 billion kW/h by the day it was commissioned into commercial operation.

The power unit has passed the preliminary pilot operation stage. Numerous tests and inspections have shown that it is ready for operation in full compliance with the design. On the 10th of March, Rostekhnadzor issued a statement on the conformity of commissioned facility with the design documents, technical regulations and energy efficiency requirements.

The new power unit of the LNPP became the fourth unit with a VVER-1200 reactor commissioned in Russia. It will fully compensate the power of Power Unit 2 with the RBMK-1000 reactor, which was finally shut down last year in November after 45 years of operation.

Today, the LNPP is the only plant in Russia with power units of two types: the uranium-graphite high-power channel-type reactor (RBMK) and the water-moderated water-cooled power reactor (VVER). The LNPP provides more than 55 % of electric power consumed in Saint Petersburg and Leningrad Oblast energy consumption or 30 % of all electric power consumed in the North-West Russia. Here it remains the largest power plant (among all generation types) and the most powerful in Russia.
