    "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:

    The launch of two nuclear reactors in two different Russian regions in one week!
    First criticality procedures begin at the Unit 1 of Leningrad NPP-2, a Generation III+ plant
    Launch procedures began at the newest Unit 1 of Leningrad NPP-2. At 10:33 on December 8, 2017, Leningrad NPP operating personnel successfully loaded the first of the 163 fuel assemblies with fresh nuclear fuel, giving start to the first criticality program.

    ....“We are very proud that it took us just four years to build from scratch a plant of a caliber that commensurates of projects completed during the Soviet industrialisation era,” president Vladimir Potanin said.

    “For us, this is not just yet another new asset, but also an opportunity to put to work the most advanced technologies in production, social policy, environment and human capital management.”

    30,000 town created for 1 large project and upgrades for future. That's very impressive! They could actually take advantage of this and considerably grow the town via various methods like greenhouse and warehouse complexes, various small type of productions that can take advantage of being rather so close to Asia, etc. Then build more necessary facilities to accommodate more people.

    Plant for production of model engines for model aircraft, boats, etc. This may not seem like much but it means
    that Russians economy is properly diversifying. It seems they have their act together and are reaching a global
    market.

    I have noticed that a lot of Russian companies can actually succeed outside Russia and sustain themselves with
    revenues from abroad while the Russian market takes its time to develop and allows them to survive. This is
    not something trivial. The world will not just buy any old junk, the production must be competitive. This indicates
    that Russian companies are real innovators and can at the very least reach reasonable standards of quality and
    function.

    Enel plans further capacity in Russia

    https://www.windpowermonthly.com/article/1463238/enel-plans-further-capacity-russia

    RUSSIA: Enel, together with nuclear firm and Rosatom subsidiary VetroOGK, plans to build up to 400MW of wind power capacity in Stavropol, southern Russia.

    Enel has signed a new agreement to install wind capacity in Russia
    The minister of energy, industry and communication for the Stavropol regional government, Vitaly Hotsenko, said completion of the project is scheduled for the second half of 2022.

    The authorities of the region have already promised investors to provide land and other necessary infrastructure for their projects.

    Enel’s new projects follows the 291MW it secured in Russia’s first tender in June 2017. Enel is developing two projects from the tender: a 90MW site in Rostov, southern Russia; and a 201MW site in the Murmansk region in the north-west of the country.

    This is the second large-scale wind project power announced by VetroOGK in the past couple of months.

    In February 2018, the company signed an agreement with the authorities of the Russian Rostov region for the building of 200MW of new capacity in wind farms in the Temryuk and Yeisk districts of the region.

    The volume of investments is estimated at RUB 20.5 billion ($300 million). Commissioning of the plants is scheduled for 2020.

    Such a waste of land and for what? Energy produced by something that is poor in efficiency, and is being imported?

    Rosatom has more money than a lot of countries, they should be doing it entirely themselves or looking at building more NPP's if such energy is needed. Windmills are causing havoc here regarding both quality and fact we are now losing prime agriculture land in Canada.

    Locally made. Full import are verboten these days. And there is no agricultural land wasted, it's a small plot with huge space in between.

    Wind and solar are excellent supplement for nuclear energy, a perfect combination and only setup in which wind and solar can make sense.

    When there is wind and sunlight they can generate electricity and take the load off nuclear power plants thus saving fuel and increasing periods between maintenance. When there is no wind or sunlight nuclear plants kick back in.

    Using wind and solar without nuclear in the equation is flat out stupidity and it is exactly what EU is doing. Their funeral.

    Rosatom is doing this exactly right.

    Wind and or solar make no sense, but combined with other sources they are a great idea.

    Here in the South Island of New Zealand most of the rivers that can be dammed to create hydro electric power already are, and a lot of good farming land has been lost to lakes... we are now looking at increasing wind farms, but I would like to see more development of current generators.... ie in the water of a river have things that are turned by the natural water flow. Equally tidal generation systems could be used too, to further supplement generation.

    The simple fact is that no one generation type is perfect and each has issues, but combined you get a more robust generation system.

    Of course market forces fuck things up.

    Why I was a kid electricity was government run... we had hydro electric and we had coal fired plants. Because the government owned them all it meant when the rivers were low the coal fired plants could take up the slack and were built in the north island where a lot of the power is used. When the rivers and lakes are full or running well then shut down the coal plants and just use clean hydro electric.

    Problem is now all the power stations are owned separately... because a monopoly is bad right?

    Now the coal fired station runs because it does not make any money when it does not run.... yeah market forces....

    Towing to the North of the floating nuclear power unit "Akademik Lomonosov"

    As reported by United Shipbuilding Corporation (OSK), on April 28, 2018 the floating power unit Akademik Lomonosov of the project 20870 went to Murmansk from the berth of Baltiysky Zavod JSC (part of the United Shipbuilding Corporation), where its construction took place.

    The towing of the floating power unit (PSB) will take place in two stages: from St. Petersburg to Murmansk, and then from Murmansk to Pevek. At the first stage, the EWP without nuclear fuel on board departed from the territory of the Baltic plant to the berth of FSUE Atomflot in Murmansk. In the second stage, with already loaded nuclear fuel and crew on board, it will be delivered from Murmansk to Pevek to the place of permanent deployment.

    As expected, our presstitute MSM echo-chamber is giving air-time to Greenpeace radicals and their "nuclear-Titanic" and "floating Chernobyl" smears, probably as its in line with the usual Establishment-mandated denigration of all things Russian...

    The Russians will be smiling however if/when other nations start writing out orders for similar plants in other remote far-flung areas with a lack of power infrastructure. FNPP could be a very nice export earner.

    They have lots of benefits... obviously power, but also heating is useful in colder climates, and indeed they can be used to convert sea water to fresh water too... there are for example lots of islands where fresh water is a serious problem... and of course electrical power generation is not easy either... many pacific nations use diesel generators, which means expensive and not environmentally friendly... not to mention not very reliable...

    But make a note of all the countries that follow the Chernobyl/Titanic claim and charge them double if they ever need it.

    I love how they made the floating NPP look very much obviously like a floating NPP. With the lego-block like construction, brown paint scheme and atom symbol on it and everything.
    As in, this is what people who've never heard of nuclear-powered ships before would imagine in their minds-eye when they hear the phrase floating NPP.

    Couldn't they have just built a tanker hull around several NPPs, painted a couple radiation symbols on its side and called it a day?

    .....

    Paintjob was probably result of selected location for this NPP. Original design was for white paint but that far up north white paint doesn't last long before rust becomes glaring.

    So instead of having to repaint it several times a year for strictly aesthetic purposes they just opted to use red paint.

    Another aspect would be that this thing is going to be sitting in a waterway in the arctic... do you really want it to be painted white... I mean if it is supposed to be used as a bumper boat then sure, but considering you want it to be seen and no run into like a US destroyer and a cargo ship... I am surprised they didn't paint it bright yellow...

    Holy hell, I totally forgot about this. Yeah, this thing will be sitting in the snow 10 months a year, it would hardly look like much if it's painted white while being in the middle of all that ice.

    And with something this cool you want it to stick out.
