ROSATOM’s TVEL Fuel Company subsidiary Siberian Chemical Plant has signed the contract with Concern Titan-2 engineering company for construction and installation works within the project of BREST-OD-300 lead-cooled fast neutron reactor facility. The total contract value is 26.3 billion rubles. The contractor will accomplish construction of reactor hall, turbine hall and related infrastructure facilities of the power plant. A 300 MW plant powered by the innovative fast reactor is the key facility of the Pilot Demonstration Energy Complex, which is in process of construction at the Siberian Chemical Plant, as a part of the strategic Russian nuclear project Proryv. In addition to the power unit, PDEC will include an on-site closed nuclear fuel cycle with a facility for fabrication and re-fabrication of mixed nitride uranium-plutonium nuclear fuel, as well as a spent fuel reprocessing facility. The completion is scheduled till the end of 2026.

Proryv or the Breakthrough project targets creation of the new technology platform for the industry with closed nuclear fuel cycle, as well as tackling the issues of spent nuclear fuel and radioactive waste. One of the project inplementations is construction of the Pilot Demonstration Energy Complex with a lead-cooled BREST-OD-300 fast neutron reactor facility with an on-site closed nuclear fuel cycle.
