Belarusian NPP one year ahead of schedule

Belarusian NPP one year ahead of schedule

The power output system of the Belarusian NPP will be introduced before the end of 2018. The project provides for the reconstruction of 4 substations and the construction of a new one in Belarus' Postavy.

The upgrading will affect power transmission lines, too. About 1000 kilometers of overhead lines will be built, and 700 km still have to be reconstructed.

Evgeny Voronov, General Director of the State Enterprise Belenergo:
We are now one year ahead of the normative construction period. And we will do it. In 2018 we will finish it.

I believe that we have set ourselves the right task - to complete the NPP power distribution project ahead of schedule.

From 2018-2020 Belarus will cease electric power imports. The adoption of such a decision became possible thanks to the modernization of the Belarusian energy system.
