Rosenergoatom JSC Communications Department, PUBLISHED 28.01.2020

The floating nuclear heat and power plant (FNHPP, a project by the Rosenergoatom Joint-Stock Company, a part of ROSATOM) has delivered its first 10 mln kWh of electric power into the isolated network of the Chauny-Bilibino hub (the Chukotka Autonomous Region) since its connection to the grid on December 19, 2019.

As of now, the FNHPP caters for 20% of the Chauny-Bilibino hubs needs, and in the meantime it is intended to fully cover the growing demand for electric power in Chukotka by becoming a reliable source of energy for both the city of Pevek and the whole region in general.

Vitaliy Trutnev, the director of the Rosenergoatom Joint-Stock Companys Administration of floating nuclear heat and power plants construction and operation, said: In the future, the electric power produced by the FNHPP will facilitate the growth of the gold, copper and other natural resources mining companies in Chukotka. Additionally, the FNHPP will be one of the key elements in the infrastructure of the Northern Sea Route. Our main objective for 2020 is to commission the facility into the production.

I think our members have understood that one of the biggest issues going forward is making sure that we have a new generation of young people that can take up the work of developing, deploying and operating nuclear facilities in the future.



For each nation or region, the scope and depth of governmental supervision on export controls over organisations should be proportionate to what type of organisation it is, its track record, and the risk to proliferation it poses.
