Abbreviation - VVER vs. WWER
I have never heard the abbreviation "WWER" used in English, only "VVER." Is this a term used in Commonwealth countries, because I only recall seeing this in German or Polish texts. --Adamrush (talk) 14:13, 4 February 2008 (UTC)
- Translated from russian to english its like call VVER. But the english expression means Water-Water Energetic Reactor, short WWER. Reagards ChNPP (talk) 09:51, 5 January 2010 (UTC)
RBMK "lack of containment"
This article repeats the myth that RBMKs have no containment, which has been spread to distinguish "dangerous" Soviet designs from modern "safe" ones. Yet Chernobyl 1 had a 2250-tonne reactor lid, which was clearly not intended to keep out the rain and the birds. The point is not that RBMKs have no containment - rather that that containment has been proven to be inadequate. Theeurocrat (talk) 14:54, 14 March 2011 (UTC)
- The assumption that the reactor lid of Tsch. - and of the other RBMK in Russia - is the containment, is wrong. Most of the western reactor types have such a reactor lid too, as a protection against impacts from outside (together with the reactor building, constructed of more or less robust concrete walls), and additionally a steal or concrete containment against gaseous pressure buildup from inside. --188.8.131.52 (talk) 22:33, 17 September 2011 (UTC)
Metsamor and VVERs models
RuPedia artice on VVER suggests, that there are 3 sub-models of VVER-440, initial VVER-440-230, later safer VVER-440-213, and seismo-adapted VVER-440-270. Latter is inherited from 230 submodel, but still is a different 'SKU'. And those submodels are the reactors of Metsamor/Armenia. 184.108.40.206 (talk) 09:22, 15 March 2011 (UTC)
