The new safe confinement (NSC) erected over the destroyed fourth power unit of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant (ChNPP) was transferred to the State Specialized Enterprise Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant and commissioned, said Anton Usov, the senior advisor on external relations of the bank.
“22 years after the organization of the Chernobyl Shelter Fund, a new safe confinement was commissioned and transferred to Ukraine. The international community raised €1.5 billion for the project. The contribution of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development amounted to more than €700 million. The NSC will serve at least 100 years and will help solve the problem of dismantling the sarcophagus over the fourth reactor”, he wrote on his Facebook page.
