SE NNEGC «Energoatom»
The state enterprise “National Nuclear Energy Generating Company “Energoatom” is the largest producer of electricity in Ukraine.
The company is the operator of four nuclear power plants — Zaporizhzhia, Rivne, South Ukrainian and Khmelnytsky, which operate 15 nuclear power units (13 VVER-1000 type power units and two VVER-440 power units) with a total installed capacity of 13,835 MW) The company also includes the Tashlyk HPP (453 MW), Oleksandrivska HPP (25 MW) and the Centralized Spent Nuclear Fuel Storage Facility in the Chernobyl Zone.
The largest nuclear power plant in Europe, one of the three largest nuclear power plants in the world. The ZANP has 6 power units with a total capacity of 6,000 MW, generates half of nuclear electricity and more than a fifth of the total electricity production in the country.
Since the start of operation, the ZNPP has produced more than 1 trillion kWh of electricity, which is a world-class achievement.
It is the only nuclear power plant in Ukraine that has its own storage of spent nuclear fuel, the operation of which allows to save tens of millions of dollars annually.On the basis of the educational and training center of the Zaporizhzhya NPP, a center for special training of repair personnel for the nuclear power industry was created, with a unique on a global scale full-scale simulator of the reactor installation of the VVER-1000 power unit. Not only Ukrainian specialists, but also international specialists under separate contracts are trained at the repair and maintenance personnel training center.
The RNPP has four power units with a total installed capacity of 2 million 835 thousand kW, which meet modern international safety requirements. The design coefficient of use of the installed capacity is 74.2%.
RNPP produces about 19 billion kWh of electricity annually. This is 21.6% of the production by nuclear power plants and 12% of the total electricity production in the country.
A modern complex for the processing of radioactive waste, which includes fragmentation, cementation, pressing and activity measurement units, has been put into operation at the RNPP.
The total design capacity is 4,000 MW. The first unit was connected to the network in 1988.
It is located in the Slavut district of the Khmelnytskyi region in the floodplain of the Horyn River. Construction began in 1981. As a result of the adoption of the moratorium, the construction of other blocks was frozen. The second power unit was commissioned in 2004.
City of Khmelnytskyi energy workers – Netishyn.
South Ukrainian NPP
The South Ukrainian Energy Complex is the only enterprise in Ukraine with integrated use of basic nuclear and shunting hydraulic storage capacities. The complex is located in the north of the Mykolaiv region. and unites the South-Ukrainian NPP, the Tashlyk HPP and the Oleksandrivskaya HPP.
Annually, the energy complex produces 17-20 billion kWh of electricity, which is almost 10% of the total production in the country and about 20% of the generation at Ukrainian nuclear power plants. Projects for the reconstruction of the technical water supply system of the SUNPP are being implemented at the SUNPP, and the completion of the Tashlytsky HPP is also underway.
Separate subdivision of SE “NAEK” Energoatom“ «ATOMREMONTSSERVIS»
Atomremontservis was created with the aim of high-quality and efficient performance of complex and above-regulatory works on the design, installation, repair, reconstruction and modernization of equipment of NPPs of Ukraine. The production activity of the ARS in the field of nuclear energy use is carried out on the basis of 6 licenses and 16 permits. Today ARS is known as a reliable partner in the implementation of international projects at industrial facilities in Poland, Hungary, and Bulgaria. One of the main functions of the separate unit is complex engineering and technical support for repair work at Ukrainian nuclear power plants. The task of the ARS VP is also the training, retraining and maintenance of high professionalism and qualification of repair personnel.
