The flagship project of the VVER-TOI NPP was found to comply with the EUR requirements

The flagship project of the VVER-TOI NPP was found to comply with the EUR requirements

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).

Atomenergoproekt is the general designer of VVER-TOI, Hydropress Design Bureau is the developer of the reactor plant and Scientific and Research Centre “Kurchatov Institute” is the scientific coordinator. Rosenergoatom is the project owner.

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.

The analysis included review of the answers to 4,332 fundamental safety-related questions of the EUR requirements, which cover the entire complex of the NPP. As a result, European experts concluded that the VEER-TOI design complies with modern views on safety and efficiency of the NPPs.

Alexander Lokshin, 1st Deputy General Director for Operational Management of Rosatom said:
“We have developed the VVER-TOI design, where we have applied new technical solutions that increase the level of safety and reliability of NPP operation. The EUR certificate received today is a confirmation of the compliance of these decisions with international requirements.”

Recognition of the compliance of VVER-TOI with “European Utility Requirements” will contribute to the promotion of Russian nuclear technologies in foreign markets.

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.
