Rosatom planning to build 10 MW NPP in Chukotka

MOSCOW. June 15 (Interfax) - The Rosatom State Corporation plans to build the world's first nuclear power plant with a capacity of up to 10 MW in Chukotka, the company said after signing the relevant agreement with the government of Chukotka during the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF-2023).

Technical designs of the reactor unit and the main process equipment are scheduled to be completed in 2024. The SNPP (small nuclear power plant) based on Shelf-M is due to be put into commercial operation in 2030, Rosatom said.

Earlier in April, Rosatom had already received a license from Rostekhnadzor to build an SNPP in Yakutia. It is due to be commissioned in 2028.
