The newly-constructed third unit of the Rostov NPP in Russia has been connected to the grid the last weekend.
"The third unit of Rostov NPP began to give the first kilowatt-hours in the unified power grid of the country. Since then the unit becomes the energy facility," the Roseneroatom said.
The reactor will operate at 30% power until it produced the necessary energy tests.
The third unit was connected to the grid a few months before the deadline.
The work on the fourth unit construction goes as scheduled.
The plant will be closed at the end of December.
The unloading was launched on November 18, 2013 and ended on 22 December 2014.
The reactor was working during 144 hours.
Hero of the day
All equipment fitted into the four self-propelled track-type platforms. On one of those was placed a reactor, on the second - control unit, on the third - heat exchanger, and on the forth, the last one - turbine.
