    Russia will help Vietnam build nuclear power plants if it receives a request, 04.07.2023.

    HANOI (Sputnik) — Russia is ready to participate in the construction of nuclear power plants in Vietnam, if it receives a corresponding request from the Vietnamese side, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Chernishenko said.

    "Russia is ready to participate and help Vietnam if a decision is made to build small- and large-capacity nuclear plants," Chernishenko said, stressing the important role that nuclear energy could play in ensuring Vietnam's nuclear sovereignty.

    He added that such a decision "will allow Vietnam to move closer to climate neutrality."

    The Russian deputy prime minister, who is on a working visit to Vietnam, made this statement at a meeting with the leaders of the Vietnamese nuclear industry that took place at the Vietnam Atomic Energy Institute on the sidelines of the 24th meeting of the Russian-Vietnamese intergovernmental commission.

    Licence issued for Russia's first land-based SMR
    24 April 2023

    Nuclear regulator Rostekhnadzor has granted a licence to build the country's first land-based small modular reactor (SMR), in the Republic of Sakha (also known as Yakutia) in Russia's Arctic north.

    Rosatom's SMR is a water-cooled RITM-200N reactor that has been adapted from the RITM-200 series used to power the latest fleet of nuclear-powered icebreakers.

    The licence is to build the SMR in the Ust-Yansky district of Yakutia and Rosatom noted that the reactors had already proven their ability in Arctic conditions on the icebreakers.

    Alexei Likhachev, director general of Rosatom, said the licence decision was "meaningful for the global nuclear industry ... this is permission to construct the first modern land-based SMR in harsh Arctic conditions".

    He said that pre-construction work was already under way, with more than 2000 tonnes of cargo delivered to the site, "there are now about 80 workers and 38 pieces of operating equipment there. The scope of work is increasing day by day. The world's first land-based SMR with RITM-200N is planned to be commissioned in 2028".

    Rosatom said that the design met "all post-Fukushima safety requirements for the modern NPP design - this is a compact modular nuclear power plant, featuring reduced construction time compared with large nuclear power plants".

    Last week, Rosatom and the Corporation for the Development of the Far East and the Arctic signed a cooperation agreement relating to the construction of the plant, saying "the project will provide a clean, cost-effective and stable source of energy to the remote Arctic territories of Yakutia with a decentralised energy supply. The electric power of the station will be at least 55 MW, the service life of non-replaceable equipment will be up to 60 years".

    The plan outlined was for a "significant part" of the planned output to be used "to develop one of Russia's largest gold ore deposits, Kyuchus, nearby Deputatskoye and Tirekhtyakh tin deposits, and municipalities in Yakutia. This will create a powerful industrial cluster in the region with new jobs and professions".

    So Russia will be the first country to develop SMR reactor technologies. In fact, it has already developed, considering floating nuclear reactors. I don't know what it's like in China now. In the West, they claim that their new SMRs will multiply in huge numbers, but their experience in this field is very small.

    The West still makes naval nuclear reactors. So that is quite likely where the experience for the SMRs will be coming from.
    In fact you could say there is more expertise in the West in naval reactors than regular ones. Because the amount of regular reactors built in the West is pitiful.

    Russia has gone even further and made a technological breakthrough and is now able to build very small reactors. It's more for military use though. So for such Poseidon or Burevestnik. Considering Burevestnik, its reactor size is impressive. The West has marine reactors, but has not yet had any experience converting them to SMRs. Russia already has floating SMRs.

    Burevestnik probably uses new reactor technologies not used anywhere else in the world. It is an aviation grade nuclear reactor. The aviation nuclear reactor projects in the early Cold War, like Project Pluto, all required new materials and reactor types. Because a regular liquid water reactor is too heavy to put into an aircraft. None of the Cold War projects were developed enough to enter service.

    French companies will participate in the construction of two reactors at the Hungarian Paks-2 nuclear power plant, together with the Russian Rosatom, the Le Monde newspaper reports.

    The approval was given by the Ministry of Energy Transition of France.
