Russia: Leningrad 2-2 moves to next phase of commissioning process

Russian nuclear regulator Rostekhnadzor has approved the next phase of commissioning at Unit 2 of the Leningrad 2 nuclear power station in Sosnovy Bor, western Russia.

The approval means the 1,085-MW Generation III+ pressurised water reactor, or VVER, has begun a gradual increase in capacity, from 1% to 35-40%.

That level will enable the turbine generator to be connected to the grid and begin generating and transmitting electricity to the country's network. Grid connection is scheduled for this autumn.

The plant, construction of which began in 2010, was brought to its minimum controlled power level and achieved first criticality in August.
