The Construction Saga of Rostov Reactors 3 and 4

WNISR, 14 February 2018

In the following timeline, the World Nuclear Industry Status Report (WNISR) rebuilds some of the 35-year long construction history of the Rostov reactors 3 and 4. Started in the Soviet Union in 1983 and completed in the Russian Federation in 2018, the site repeatedly changed names and “official” construction-start dates. The WNISR documents the somewhat confusing, eventful communication history of these nuclear construction projects.
