The Kalinin Nuclear Power Plant is situated in Udomlya city of the Tver Region. Recently two units of the plant have been deactivated. It had never happened before.
Let us make a photo excursion on the territory of this huge plant to get some more details.
The building of “Svetlitsa” hotel is one of the highest in the city and the power plant can be perfectly observed from there. The city itself resembles Slavutitch town, the youngest in Ukraine.
Impressive public information center of the power plant.
Friendly staff and atmosphere in here.
Plan of the safe routes along the territory of the plant.
Map of the city, various awards …
Show room of the center is also rather large.
It has many exhibits such as ancient radiometers …
Here is a wonderful model of the station.
And these photos have been taken in “Elemash” machine building plant in Electrostal city. The plant produces the fuel element (the main structural element of the heterogeneous reactor active area containing nuclear fuel), i.e. fuel assembly for power units of Russia, Europe and fleet. A bit off the topic, but too impressive and must be shown.
Some radiation defense stands.
Structures of power production in Russia and in the world.
One more amuzing stand – the kettle steam rotates the generator turbine and the generator supplies the building with energy. It is a real pearl for any physics classroom!
And here is a wonderful VVER-1000 that replaced RBMK-1000 since 1986. It is considered to be more safe due to its absolutely different construction.Â By the way, Canada uses reactors similar to the Chernobyl ones and isn’t going to replace them.
The stand demonstrating superiority of atomic energy over others.
