  2. The photos is showing the preliminary installation of the main part of the pressure vessel for a VVER-1000/320 pressurized water reactor. It is part of Unit 4 which is scheduled to go online in 2011. Construction of this unit was commenced in 1986 and the collapse of the Soviet Union indefinitely halted the construction. Construction was restarted in 2005 after the completion of the third unit.
