Heat from the floating nuclear power plant of ROSATOM's energy division JSC Concern Rosenergoatom was supplied to the 5th microdistrict of Pevek in Chukotka in Russia. With the connection of the 5th microdistrict of Pevek 5, this part of the city is transferred to closed system of urban water supply. Traditionally, water supply in Pevek was carried out according to the open scheme, when the hot water to the apartments comes directly from the heating network. A distinctive disadvantage of such a system is that in case of a heat cut-off, hot water is also disconnected. The connection of the rest of the city districts to the FNPP will be carried out in stages, as soon as the city heating networks are ready. As a result, in the near future the FNPP will be able to fully replace the Chaun CHPP.

The FNPP was fully commissioned on May 22, 2020 and officially became the 11th nuclear power plant in Russia and the northernmost one in the world. As of today, it has generated over 57 million kWh of electricity since its connection to the grid. The FNPP’s electric capacity is 70 MW, thermal capacity is up to 50 Gcal/h.
