This was stated today by Energy Minister Viktor Karankevich during the opening ceremony of the Belarusian exposition on the sidelines of the 65th session of the IAEA General Conference, which provides information on the achievements of Belarus in nuclear energy, the implementation of the project for the construction of BelNPP, as well as on the development of the social and economic infrastructure of the atomic scientists city Ostrovets.

The minister noted that the construction of Belarusian NPP is at the final stage. In June, an act of acceptance of the first power unit of the plant into commercial operation was signed. The readiness of the second unit of BelNPP is almost 90%. Now hot trial of the reactor system is going. This year, nuclear fuel will be loaded into the core of the reactor of the second power unit of BelNPP. This will initiate the physical start-up phase of the unit. Its commissioning is planned for 2022.
