St. Petersburg, June 17 - Neftegaz.RU. European power generation companies agreed that the most advanced Russian project of the VVER-TOI NPP complies with the European Utility Requirement (EUR).
The conclusions on the compliance of design solutions with the EUR requirements were made by the European experts based on a review of the design documentation and information provided in the documents on the reference project of the Kursk NPP-2.
VVER-TOI is a typical design of an optimized and computerized VVER Power Unit. This is an evolutionary development of AES-92 design with VVER-1200. The overall task assigned to the VVER-TOI designers was to develop a standard design of a high-capacity NPP unit capable of competing with rapidly developing and recognized leaders in the field of nuclear energy in all aspects: in terms of technical solutions, technical and economic characteristics of the NPP, safety-related solutions, time period for the construction of NPP, as well as the use of modern information technologies and information management at all stages of its life cycle. At present, Kursk NPP-2 is being built based on VVER-TOI design.
