The first power unit of BelNPP saved about USD 250 million

Written by Ministry of Energy of the Republic of Belarus

The first power unit of Belarusian nuclear power plant saved about USD 250 million on substituting natural gas imports, the Prime Minister said.

From the moment the unit is connected to the unified energy system and until the end of this year, the total electricity output by the unit is estimated at 6 billion kWh.

After the launch of two power units of BelNPP, the country will be able to replace about 4.5 billion cubic meters of gas per year.

Belarus has become the first foreign site where the state corporation "Rosatom" has built a nuclear power plant with pressurized water reactors of the "3+" generation - with increased safety characteristics.

The project laid the foundation for the development of a new high-tech sector for Belarus - nuclear energy. This is not only a guarantor of the energy security of our country in the coming decades, but also a big step in the technological development of the national economy, and, therefore, an improvement in the quality of life of people.
