Decision on BN-1200 Fast Reactor scheduled for 2022, says Rosatom

7 november 2019

R&D on the design of Russia’s BN-1200 fast neutron reactor is scheduled to be complete before the end of 2021 and in 2022 state nuclear energy corporation Rosatom will decide whether or not to go ahead with construction, a conference heard.

Rosatom’s Vladimir Asmolov told Atomeco 2019 in Hungary that Russia now believed the cost of building fast reactors with a capacity of 1,200 MW will be comparable to the cost of the VVER-1200 reactors that Rosatom is already building in Russia and abroad.
