Abbreviation - VVER vs. WWER[edit]

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"[edit]

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. --62.202.229.248 (talk) 22:33, 17 September 2011 (UTC)

Metsamor and VVERs models[edit]

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. 79.111.193.57 (talk) 09:22, 15 March 2011 (UTC)
