A fresh photo report from the Kursk Nuclear Power Plant.
Before entering the plant, all visitors must be measured for a general background. For this, they sit in a special chair and wait for several minutes. The same is done in the end of the excursion.
An alarm system with a set of sensors is hung all over the plant. To be short, the green light means that everything is fine. Yellow – be on the alert. Red – don’t panic and hurry up, just follow the rules and do what is prescribed.
All visitors are given a uniform. A camera and a passport are the only things that they are allowed to take with themselves.
RBMK-1000 which means “High Power Channel-type Reactor”.
A loading / unloading machine designed for refueling. The process can take place both in a shutdown reactor and when it’s running.
