Nuclear power plant design and construction

The Engineering Division of the Rosatom State Corporation — ASE Group of companies implements projects for high power NPP design and construction, nuclear R&D and research reactors centers, RAW and SNF management facilities, thermal power facilities.

ASE is a sole engineering company at the global nuclear power market that has reference NPP power units of new generation.

Generation III

Power units No. 1-3 of Tianwan NPP in China

Power units No. 1,2 of Kudankulam NPP In India

Power unit No. 1 of Busher NPP in Iran

Generation III+

Power unit No. 1 of Novovoronezh NPP-2

Power unit No. 1 of Leningrad NPP-2

JSC ASE Group of Companies develops and implements extensively the innovative Multi-D project management system in the area of complex engineering facilities construction, which allows more efficient management of such parameters as budget, deadlines and quality.

All the company’s projects are based on the unique scientific and technological potential of the Russian nuclear industry that for many parameters has no peer in the world

During construction of NPPs ASE Group of Companies uses WWER light water reactor plants (water-moderated power reactor under pressure). In such reactors the water is a neutron moderator and simultaneously a coolant.

WWER reactor is considered to be one of the safest in the world and a basis for the programme of development of the Russian nuclear industry and expansion of export. The experience of successful operation of WWER-based NPPs exceeds already 1400 reactor hours. Nuclear power plants equipped with VVER-type reactors that are built with the participation of Russian specialists in Finland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary and other countries, are safe and cost-effective. For example, according to the IAEA conclusion, Loviisa NPP (Finland) is one of the most environmentally safe nuclear power plants in the world. And at the symposium held in August 2010 in Lianyungang (China) for the parties participating in the construction of the Tianwan NPP, the Chinese side stated that the record was established at the TNPP among operating NPPs in China in terms of duration of non-stop operation during the first fuel cycle.

The competitive advantages of the company’s proposals are accounted for by the use of up-to-date technologies and the latest developments of Russian scientists and designers. All projects comply with the current international requirements and recommendations of the IAEA.
