The Bilibino Nuclear Power Plant (Russian: Билибинская АЭС [About this soundpronunciation ]) is a power plant in Bilibino, Chukotka Autonomous Okrug, Russia. The plant is equipped with four EGP-6 reactors.[2] The plant is the smallest and the northernmost operating nuclear power plant in the world.[3] Plans to begin a shutdown procedure of the plant in 2019 have been announced,[4] and it will be replaced by the floating nuclear power station Akademik Lomonosov.[5]
