Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant 2018 Today
Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant 2018 – – Report from the Chernobyl Zone
The Chernobyl nuclear power plant today, in the winter of 2018, is a great new New Safe Confinement. This is a large new sarcophagus over the destroyed block of ChNPP # 4. Constructed New Safe Confinement in 2016.

The work was carried out by two cranes with the carrying capacity of 300 and 270 tons, one of which was located on the pioneer wall, and the second one was to the north of the deaerator stack of the Shelter object, on the temporary storage site of the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant.

The fulfillment of this task significantly increases the fire safety of the new safe confinement.
The sites of the potentially combustible roof of the engine room, located in the area of the end walls of the arch in the axes 60-62 and 38-40, were dismantled as part of the NSC fencing circuit, which was completed by the end of 2017.

Chernobyl Nuclear Plant 1986
April 26, 1986 at the fourth power unit of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant there was an accident, which became the biggest catastrophe in the history of nuclear energy. Chernobyl pictures after explosion (disaster)

Chernobyl nuclear power plant at night in 2017
To see the Chernobyl nuclear power plant at night is very difficult
You can not always see the Chernobyl NPP at night. On an excursion it is almost impossible, if you are not an employee or protection of the Chernobyl zone.
A small reference on the Chernobyl nuclear power plant
Currently, the cancellation of the station and the stage of erecting a new sarcophagus over the emergency 4th power unit is continuing. A new sarcophagus (called the “New Safe Confinement” (NSC)) was pushed into the design position at the end of 2016, the project is scheduled for completion on November 30, 2020.

Shelter is an insulating structure above the fourth power unit of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant, built by November 1986 after the explosion of the 4th reactor. 400 thousand cubic meters of concrete mix and 7000 tons of metal structures were used for the construction of the Shelter. It was built in the shortest time – 206 days. In the construction of the Shelter, 90 thousand people were involved, the head of the installation works on the Shelter – VI Rudakov. Later, the building was given the unofficial name of Sarcophagus.
During construction, the service life of the structure was predicted to be 20-40 years. After the construction, the sarcophagus was strengthened. Today, experts are confident that the sarcophagus, with due care, will last for more than a decade. Decommissioning CHNPP
Currently, due to the high degree of risk in the event of the destruction of the old sarcophagus over it, another dome was built, called “Shelter-2”. The new facility is a steel structure 108 m high and 150 m long, beneath which is an old sarcophagus and auxiliary structures. On November 29, 2016, the Shelter-2 facility was put into operation.

According to the chairman of the Admission Board of the facility, the chief engineer of the ChNPP SSB Andrey Bilyk, the conditions under which the work was performed can be compared with those in which the accident at the fourth block of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant occurred in 1986.
