Rostov Nuclear Power Plant is located near Volgodonsk, the Rostov Region. As a rule, they prohibit visitors from photographing so we are pretty lucky to have these photos of the power plant.
Visitors are prohibited from carrying in cellphones and laptops into the facility and taking photos of entrances, exits, etc.
We are at the museum of the NPP.
This is a model of the nuclear reactor.
Two power generating units are now working and two more are under construction.
Nuclear power plants of the world.
Automatic radiation monitoring systems.
That’s all about the museum and now let’s go to the power plant.
‘Today is labor protection day’.
All visitors must wear hard helmets and before they let visitors in, they instruct them on safety measures and tell what objects can and cannot be taken pictures of.
The shift superviser who was also the guide told some interesting facts about the NPP. For example at night, when energy consumption decreases, they have to supply electricity for free.
Power generating unit 1.
These turbines rotate due to nuclear energy and generate electricity.
Behing this wall there is the nuclear reactor.
Power generating unit 2.
It’s hot in there!
The telephone and first-aid kit box.
Construction of the third power unit. Those are metal wires where they will later pour concrete in which will protect the environment from radiation.
