Rusatom Overseas received Rostekhnadzor’s license for nuclear installations construction

Moscow, August 10 - Neftegaz.RU. Russia’s watchdog Rostekhnadzor has granted a license to Rusatom Overseas allowing the company to build nuclear installations at nuclear power plants.
The license was obtained within the framework of the land-based small modular reactor plant (SMR NPP) construction project with a RITM-200N reactor to be implemented in Yakutia, Russia.

Oleg Sirazetdinov, Vice President of Rusatom Overseas, said:
  • We have reached another milestone within our work on the SMR project in Yakutia by receiving the Rostekhnadzor license
  • It is an important step on our way to successful implementation of this the project which completion is scheduled for 2028
The SMR project in Yakutia is based on ROSATOM referenced technology with RITM-200 reactors whose design has incorporated many years of experience of operating small reactors at the Russian nuclear icebreaker fleet.

For now, 6 RITM-200 reactors are installed at state-of-the-art icebreakers Arktika, Sibir, and Ural.
2 reactors of Arktika icebreaker successfully passed dockside and sea trials.
On 21 October 2020, Arktika icebreaker went into service.
Another 4 RITM-200 reactors will be installed at the icebreakers that are currently under construction.

On December 23, 2020, ROSATOM and the Government of Yakutia signed an agreement on FOAK SMR NPP construction in North-East of Russia.
Under the agreement Yakutia confirms the off-take of up to 50 MW of SMR electricity and also confirms its readiness to assist in SMR NPP siting.

For now, most of the engineering surveying on site has been completed with Environmental Impact Assessment and site license justification materials developed.
On June 22, 2021, public hearings were held in Yakutia.
The SMR NPP construction is due to begin in 2024.
