  “Round” Table on the development of nuclear power in the region has completed discussions in Vilnius (Lithuania)

2011 11 24

“Round” Table on the “Perspectives of nuclear power in Europe following the crash in Japan: the Baltic region”, held in Vilnius, the capital of Lithuania, has closed its session. The event was organized by public organizations, reported IA REGNUM on 23 November.

Lithuanian politics, energy and environment experts, as well as representatives of public movements participated in the discussions on the issues related with the construction of nuclear power plants in Lithuania, Belarus and the Kaliningrad region. The Russian side was represented by the management of the state corporation “Rosatom”, RAN. Experts in the sphere of energy and experts-practitioners tried to satisfy curiosity of all participants in the debate. If, for example, politicians were more interested in the security issues, investments, pricing and possible tendencies in exporting electricity of the Baltic NPP and other critical issues, environment experts of the three states requested for responses to the questions of possible impact of the NPP on the environment, waste storage issues, durability of the stations and evacuation plansin case of forcemajeure.

Lithuanian Journalists were giving most inconvenient and critical questions. For example, why the Russian side considers the reactor of Hitachi Company less reliable than their own reactor of the 3+ generation? Can three nuclear power plants be built at a time within such a small region?

The Russian side, actually, was concerned only about one issue – about the safety and security of the construction and operation of “Iganalina 2”. As “the reactor, which is intended to be built in Lithuania, is of the “boiling type”, which is similar to the reactor that was operating in Chernobyl and exactly the same type that was operating in Fukushima”.
