Russian nuclear power plants hit a new record high in 2019

UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — Nuclear power plants (NPPs) in Russia in 2019 generated more than 208.8 billion kWh, setting a new record. This was reported on January 1 at Rosenergoatom (part of Rosatom).

In 2018, Russian nuclear power plants generated more than 204.3 billion kWh. Thus, the stations increased their total generation by more than 4.5 billion kWh.

“The maximum generation among Russian nuclear power plants that made the largest contribution to the Concern’s next record was provided by Rostov (over 33.8 billion kWh), Kalinin (over 31 billion kWh) and Balakovo nuclear plants (about 30 billion kWh),” the website said in a statement . Rosenergoatom.

At present, the share of nuclear generation is about 19% of the total electricity generation in Russia. The share of nuclear generation in the European part of the country reaches 40%.

This means that every fifth light bulb in Russia is supplied with energy produced by the country’s nuclear plants, the concern explained.
