Financing begins for first VVER-1500 project at Leningrad-II
Atomenergoproekt (AEP) St. Petersburg will draw a $1.75-million credit to
finance design of a second nuclear power plant near the northwestern Russian
metropolis, it was announced this month. The St. Petersburg branch of the
Russian National Reserve Bank opened a credit line for the nuclear plant
design institute in mid-October.
Leningrad-II will have the first VVER-1500s, aimed at replacing power
supplied by the existing Leningrad nuclear power plant, whose four
RBMK-1000s are due to be decom-missioned beginning in 2019.
Two or more VVER-1500s could be operating at Leningrad-II by 2020.
Plans have been announced for financing of the Leningrad-II project through
sales of power to Sweden, via a 150-kilometer (93-mile) cable to be laid on
the bottom of the Gulf of Finland (NW, 1 Sept., 6). BaltEnergo, a 51%
subsidiary of operator Leningrad Nuclear Power Plant, is partici-pating in
