The Bilibino Nuclear Power Plant (Russian: Билибинская АЭС [About this sound pronunciation ]) is a power plant in Bilibino, Chukotka Autonomous Okrug, Russia. The plant is equipped with four EGP-6 reactors.[1] The plant is the smallest and the northernmost operating nuclear power plant in the world.[2] Plans to begin a shutdown procedure of the plant in 2019 have been announced,[3] and it will be replaced by the floating nuclear power station Akademik Lomonosov.[4]
