Russia ranks second in Europe in terms of nuclear power generation capacity. It is also a world leader in the field of fast reactor operation. Today, there are two power units with sodium-cooled fast reactors operating in the country: BN-600 and BN-800. The first was launched in 1980, the second in 2015.

The most powerful nuclear power plant in Russia in terms of installed capacity is the Leningrad Nuclear Power Plant. Its electric capacity is 4200 MW. The construction of the complex began in 1967, and the first power unit was commissioned in 1973. In total, the NPP has four reactors in operation.

It is followed by the Rostov NPP in terms of capacity, which was commissioned in 2001. Its electric capacity is 4030 MW. It is the only one in modern Russia where three power units were launched over the course of seven years.

We also note that Russia is the only country that owns a floating nuclear power plant. In the foreseeable future, the Chinese can create something similar.

We are grateful to the state corporation "Rosatom" for help in creating the material.
