Kursk Nuclear Power Station

Share with friends :

The Nuclear power station Kursk (Russian: Курская АЭС) is located in western Russia on the bank of the Seym River about 40 kilometers west of the city of Kursk. The nearby town of Kurchatov was founded when construction of the plant began. The plant feeds the grid for Kursk Oblast and 19 other regions.
The reactors at the plant are the now obsolete RBMK type, the same type used at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant.
The plant was originally equipped with two reactors. Four more reactors were added between 1976 and 1985.
