" The construction of the SMR nuclear power plant should begin in 2024 , "says Rosatom, for a commissioned commissioning for 2028. civil industries. Nuclear developed countries, as well as many American start-ups, have embarked on a race for the development of an SMR. In this context, Russia has taken some lengths ahead of France.

800 Jobs

The Rosatom mini-reactor, a life of sixty years, must be constructed in a very remote area of ​​a region itself isolated, the Raïon of Ust-Yansky, which borders the Arctic ocean. The Russian nuclear giant argues that this small plant will create 800 jobs in this region that lives from its reindeer livestock and its mines. However, explains a setting of Rosatom, "The Golden Mine of Koutchous (in Iakoutie) is the most important untapped mine of Russia. It is impossible to transport enough diesel until there (to power generators). The only possibility is to build a small nuclear power plant. "

in the image of the Siberian project, Rosatom aims, with its SMR, the remote areas of electrical networks.
