European power generation companies agreed that the most advanced Russian project of the VVER-TOI NPP complies with the European Utility Requirement. The ceremony of handing of the corresponding certificate was held in St. Petersburg on June 13.
Atomenergoproekt JSC (a company of Rosatom engineering division) is the general designer of VVER-TOI, Hydropress Design Bureau is the developer of the reactor plant and Scientific and Research Centre “Kurchatov Institute” is the scientific coordinator. Rosenergoatom JSC is the project owner.

At the ceremony, Mr Guillaume Jacquard, the EUR President, EDF Deputy Director of the Directorate for Project Support and Digital Transformation, thanked all the participants for their hard work. He said that “I can state that the VVER-TOI Project has passed the most thorough and precise examination and it fully complies with the requirements of EUR.”

The conclusions on the compliance of design solutions with the EUR requirements were made by the European experts based on a review of the design documentation and information provided in the documents on the reference project of the Kursk NPP-2.

The analysis included review of the answers to 4,332 fundamental safety-related questions of the EUR requirements, which cover the entire complex of the nuclear power plant.

As a result, European experts concluded that the VEER-TOI design complies with modern views on safety and efficiency of the nuclear power plants. The analysis made it possible to improve the quality of subsequent projects and facilitate future operation of nuclear power plants.
