    Russian Gov't Approves Plans to Build 11 New Nuclear Power Units by 2030

    The Russian government approved on Tuesday plans to construct 11 new nuclear power reactors by 2030, including two commercial power units with fast-breeder BN-1200 reactors in the Urals and Russia’s first modern medium-capacity nuclear power reactor at the Kolskaya-2 nuclear power plant, it said in the decree published on its official website.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The list does not include the power units already under construction at Rostov NPP, Novovoronezh NPP, Leningrad NPP-2, floating NPP Akademik Lomonosov, Kursk NPP-2 and Kaliningrad NPP.

    Russia plans to build one BN-1200 reactor at Beloyarsk NPP and the South Urals NPP.

    Fast breeders, such as the cutting-edge BN-1200, a 1200-megawatt reactor, use a liquid metal heat-transfer agent as a coolant. Fast neutron reactors significantly minimize radioactive waste and expand the range of fuel used at nuclear power plants.

    According to the experts, the fast reactors are most effective when used as part of a dual-component system combined with thermal neutron reactors and not on their own.

    Only a few countries possess fast neutron reactor technology, with Russia leading in this field. Such reactors are believed to be able to significantly improve the safety of the nuclear power industry as well as making it more competitive.

    In 2015, Russia launched a controlled nuclear fission at the Beloyarsk NPP BN-800 fast breeder reactor using a liquid metal heat-transfer agent as a coolant, which is considered a prototype of the BH-1200.

    Also according to the plan, a nuclear power unit, comprising a facility to produce high-density uranium-plutonium neutron fuel and a fast neutron reactor with a closed on-site nuclear fuel cycle, called the BREST-OD-300, should be constructed by 2025. The power unit will be included in the Proryv (Breakthrough) project which is focused on developing technologies to close the fuel cycle.

    Russia’s first medium-capacity nuclear power reactor — the WWER-600 developed by Gidropress OKB — is expected to become operational at the Kolskaya-2 nuclear power plant in Russia’s north.

    Interest in small- and medium-capacity nuclear power reactors has increased in recent years and is driven both by a desire to reduce the impact of capital costs and to generate power away from large grid systems, especially in remote areas where it is difficult to deliver other types of fuel.

    It was reported earlier that the Kola Peninsula was selected as the location of the new power reactor because major investment projects will be implemented in this territory.

    In total, seven WWER-TOI (V-510) nuclear reactors are planned to be finished by 2030.

    According to the information provided by its developer Gidropress OKB, the WWER-TOI has a standard optimized and informatized design with the WWER reactor having an estimated output capacity of 1250 MW.

    Two reactors are planned to be build at Smolensk NPP-2, Nizhny Novgorod NPP, Kostroma NPP and one at Tatar NPP.

    not sure if its the right thread to post this but anyways


    Russia to create its own Wikipedia

    The Russian government will develop a domestic analogue of Wikipedia on the basis of the Great Russian Encyclopedia and other Russian scientific books, a document signed by Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said. The document was published on the website of legal information.

    A special committee will supervise the implementation of the project. The committee includes Deputy Minister of Communications and Mass Media Alexei Volin, representatives of the Ministry of Education, Ministry of Culture and the Russian Academy of Sciences. Deputy Prime Minister Sergei Prikhodko will chair the committee.

    The document states that "the national scientific and educational interactive encyclopedic portal" is to be developed on the basis of the electronic version of "Great Soviet Encyclopedia" and other Russian scientific encyclopedias.

    http://www.pravdareport.com/news/russia/kremlin/30-08-2016/135466-russia_wikipedia-0/

    Its been first reported in 2014, one would think alot has already been done to implement this project but it seems its still on the planning stage despite all the time that has passed since the project was conceived.

    First international flight arrives from Minsk at Moscow's newest airport

    Zhukovsky International Airport was officially opened in May

    MOSCOW, September 12. /TASS/. Moscow’s fourth and newest international airport in the city of Zhukovsky in the Moscow region, has received its first flight from the Belarusian capital of Minsk, a TASS correspondent reported.

    An official at the airport told TASS that the flight was conducted by the Belarusian national airline, Belavia. The Boeing 737-300 aircraft with 133 passengers onboard landed at the airfield, and 88 passengers are expected on the return flight.

    "Belavia planned to use an Embraier 175 aircraft for flying to Zhukovsky, but due to a higher demand for tickets it replaced it with airliners with a larger seat capacity," the official said.

    Zhukovsky International Airport was officially opened in May. Currently, Minsk is the only international destination one can fly to from the new airport.

    Earlier an official with Belavia told TASS that the Belarusian air carrier will continue flights to Minsk also from the Domodedovo airport.

    According to the data on the Belavia website, a flight to Zhukovsky International Airport will cost nearly half that of a flight from the Domodedovo airport. For example, on September 12, the cheapest price for one of the five flights to Minsk via Domodedovo was 50-85 euros while the same flight via Zhukovsky costs 30 euros.

    Earlier, several Russian air carriers stated their intention to launch flights from the Zhukovsky airfield, among them are Ural airlines, Yamal and Wim-Avia. They have already received licenses from the interdepartmental commission at the Transport Ministry to conduct regular international flights from Zhukovsky. The air carriers plan to fly to Austria, Germany, Bulgaria, Hungary, China, Czech Republic as well as Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan.

    A Yamal Airline official told TASS that the air carrier plans to start flights from the Zhukovsky International Airport in October.

    RZD launches new passenger service between Moscow, Berlin

    For time being, the trains will be cruising twice a week




    MOSCOW, December 17. /TASS/. Russia’s state railway corporation RZD is launching new trains between Moscow and Berlin. The first such train under the brand name Swift is to start from Moscow’s Kursky railway station on Saturday at 13:05 Moscow Standard Time.

    The operator of the upgraded service is the Federal Passenger Company, an RZD subsidiary. For time being, the trains will be cruising twice a week, leaving Moscow on Saturday and Sundays and Berlin, on Sundays and Mondays.

    They will make stops in Smolensk, Orsha, Minsk, Brest, Terespol, Warsaw, Poznan, Rzepin, and Frankfurt an der Oder.

    The coaches manufactured by the Spanish company Patentes Talgo S.L. are equipped with a system for an automatic changeover of the width of mounted wheels. This enables to slash considerably the time that trains spend in Brest during the replacement of mounted wheels for the 1,520 mm ‘Russian’ track gauge with the ones for the 1,435 mm European track gauge.

    As a result, the travelers will spend 20 hrs 14 mins en route between Moscow and Berlin instead of the 24 hrs 49 mins they have been spending so far.

    "Yandex" has launched a data center in the Vladimir region

    The company "Yandex" has launched its own data center in the village of Energetik, Vladimir region, the total volume of capital costs within the framework of the investment project at the moment amounted to 2.5 billion rubles.

    As told TASS in "Yandex", this is the first processing center and data storage (data centers) in Russia, which is not possible additional cooling outside air. "According to our data, the new data center of "Yandex" is the most effective in Russia in terms of Power Usage Effectiveness. For already completed module it is equal to 1.07. To achieve this, allowed no need to waste energy on cooling," the company explained.

    Engineers of "Yandex", developed the concept of the data center previously participated in the construction from scratch of the Finnish data centre company. Now launched the first phase of the data center, there will be four. The design capacity of each queue is 10 MW. The company will use the data center for their own needs.

    "Yandex" has started to build a data center in the Vladimir region less than two years ago. Vladimir is one of Russia's largest substations of JSC "FGC UES", which will provide electricity to the data center.

    According to the Director of the Department of construction and exploitation of "Yandex" Andrey Korolenko, the company managed to significantly reduce the time of preparation of the project construction, the construction itself and commissioning due to the support of the Vladimir region. "In addition, given the volume of investments of "Yandex" in the Vladimir region we are in compliance with the regional legislation can rely on tax incentives that will allow us to make new data center even more efficient," he added. According to the company, estimated tax payments "Yandex" in the regional and local budgets for 2017 reached 40 million rubles.

    Some really good pictures of it here:
