Now everyone who wishes can see the today’s work of ChNPP, decommissioning process and Shelter Object transformation into an environmentally safe system.
“ChNPP is becoming another facility of the Exclusion Zone, which anybody who wants will be able to visit. This will give a chance to visitors to get a full picture of the Plant’s work and projects being implemented within the industrial site. In view of this, we decided to follow the principle “A picture is worth a thousand words” — says Vitalii Petruk, Head of SAUEZM.
The main attention will be given to the safety measures for visitors who will be provided with all necessary personal protection equipment and pass the obligatory dosimetric control.
In the course of the visit visitors will be able to follow the trail of the Plant’s workers. Full dipping into the NPP’s atmosphere will be promoted even by the road to the facility as the visitors will get to the Plant from Slavutych by the same commuter train, by which the ChNPP workers head to work on a daily basis.
Exploration of the Plant’s work will start from the Check Point “Semykhody”, where the largest ChNPP change facility is located. After passing the control, visitors will be shown the today’s life of the Plant. The basic tour includes visiting many facilities: from emergency protective shelters to a local canteen. Guests will be able to have a look at the main rooms of Unit No.3, from which the reactor was operated, and to see the Unit’s systems as well. In addition, anybody who wants will be able to see the Shelter Object’s Integrated Automated Monitoring System (IAMS) in operation, which monitors the Object’s state these days; and to find out more about the New Safe Confinement (NSC).
SSE ChNPP Director General Igor Gramotkin emphasizes: “It must be remembered that the Chernobyl NPP continues to be a nuclear facility, and we in the same way as before strictly follow all safety requirements for similar enterprises. However, we are aiming to be maximally open and transparent, trying to minimize a number of barriers for visitors and release them from a complex scheme of visit approval. I strongly believe that such changes will become extra steps towards transformations in the country!”

According to the approved NSC design sealed membrane is fitted at the junctions of the Arch eastern end wall to the Block B existing structures of Chornobyl NPP second generation main building. The membrane serves as a separation barrier between the external environment and internal radioactively contaminated space. Mounting of the membrane on the block B structure is implemented using the special metal sealing anchors.
With the purpose to install the sealing anchors, preliminary work was carried out to remove debris and, in part, the post-emergency layer of concrete to ensure a flat foundation under the anchors.
To fix the anchors in the design position in the block B covering in August 2017 complex work was started to drill holes for anchors fixing parts at the elev. +75.58, +72.10, +67.66.
