Шановні колеги, від щирого серця вітаю вас із нашим професійним святом — Днем енергетика!
Енергетика — унікальна галузь, яка кожен день забезпечує своєю продукцією всіх без винятку громадян країни. Будь-який збій, будь-який недолік в нашій роботі негайно позначиться на всіх галузях господарства країни, негайно буде помічений усіма, хто щодня споживає продукцію нашої галузі. І навіть в своє професійне свято багато енергетики будуть приймати привітання на робочому місці.
У нас є право на це свято, є вагомі підстави пишатися своїми досягненнями. 40 років тому саме з Чорнобильської АЕС почалася атомна ера в українській енергетиці. Сьогодні ми знову першопрохідці — адже першими вступили на етап зняття АЕС з експлуатації, виконуючи закономірну й важливу частину життєвого циклу будь-якої АЕС. Наш досвід, наші знання, наші навички стануть значною часткої у національній скарбниці безпечного виведення атомних блоків з експлуатації.

The works on dismantling of the light roof of the Unit 4 turbine hall are being carried out at the site of the New Safe Confinement (NSC).
Sergei Poplygin, Head of Shop for Object Shelter and New Safe Confinement Operation commented on dismantling methods: “The method itself of dismantling, fragmentation and handling of dismantled roof is the following. The panel is dismantled with size of 12x3 meters. Using the crane, it is descended directly into the body of a special motor vehicle. Subsequently, this vehicle moves the panel to the fragmentation site at the territory of the former assembly area of the NSC arch. At this site, the panels are fragmented to allow their transportation in the body of a KrAZ vehicle”.
Then the fragments removed from the roof will be delivered to "Buryakivka" radioactive waste disposal site.

Chernobyl NPP officially stopped generation of electricity on 15th December 2000. This became one of the most tragic events in the ChNPP history second to the 1986 accident.
At 13:17, by the order of the President of Ukraine Leonid Kuchma, Power Unit No.3 reactor was shut down forever with a turn of the key.
The decision on the pre-schedule decommissioning of Power Unit No.3 and final shutdown of ChNPP was made by the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine on 29th March 2000. Such actions were caused by the commitments of Ukraine to the world community stipulated in the Memorandum of Understanding between the Government of Ukraine and Governments of the G7 countries and the Commission of the European Communities on the Chernobyl NPP Closure. The Memorandum was signed on 25th December 1995.
