The Novovoronezh nuclear power station (Russian: Нововоронежская АЭС [ pronunciation (help·info)]) is a nuclear power station close to Novovoronezh in Voronezh Oblast, central Russia. The site was vital to the development of the VVER design; every unit built was essentially a prototype of its design. On this site is built the Novovoronezh Nuclear Power Plant II.
In 2002 Novovoronezh-3 was modernised and life extended, including new safety systems.
In 2010 Novovoronezh-5 was shut down for modernization to extend its operating life for an additional 25 years, the first VVER-1000 to undergo such an operating life extension. The works include the modernization of management, protection and emergency systems, and improvement of security and radiation safety systems.
The Novovoronezh Nuclear Power Plant has five units:
|Novovoronezh-1||VVER-210 (prototype)||197 MW||210 MW||01.07.1957||30.09.1964||31.12.1964||16.02.1988|
|Novovoronezh-2||VVER-365 (prototype)||336 MW||365 MW||01.06.1964||27.12.1969||14.04.1970||29.08.1990|
|Novovoronezh-3||VVER-440/179||385 MW||417 MW||01.07.1967||27.12.1971||29.06.1972||2016 planned|
|Novovoronezh-4||VVER-440/179||385 MW||417 MW||01.07.1967||28.12.1972||24.03.1973||2017 planned|
|Novovoronezh-5||VVER-1000/187 (Prototype)||950 MW||1000 MW||01.03.1974||31.05.1980||20.02.1981||2035 planned|
