Russia ready to build more nuclear power plants in Belarus

Russia’s state nuclea corporation Rosatom is discussing with Belarus the possible construction of another nuclear power plant and a research reactor, Belarusian state news agency Belta reported.

Belta said Rosatom chief executive officer Alexey Likhachev had made the comments in a video message to employees in Russia’s nuclear industry.

Earlier this month Belarus announced that the Russian-built Belarusian-1 nuclear power plant had been connected to Belarus’ power grid and had started producing electricity.

Belarus is building two Russia-supplied Generation III VVER-1200 plants near Ostrovets in western Belarus. Unit 1 is scheduled to be put into commercial operation in February 2021 and Unit 2 in May 2022.
