Fossil power for nuclear sites

3 July 2003

Washington Group International and Raytheon Technical Services have won a $466 million contract to refurbish and restart fossil fuel stations at two production sites in Russia ­ Seversk (two production reactors) and Zheleznogorsk. The contract, placed by the US Department of Energy's National Nuclear Security Administration, covers non-nuclear services. According to Washington Group this involves installing new turbine and boilers at existing coal-fired stations that will provide power and district heating.

The work is expected to take five to six years. When it is completed a shutdown programme for the three production reactors will begin under the responsibility of the Russian authorities.
