Thecompanywasestablishedin 2009 for development and commercial implementation of nuclear facilities based on new-generation fast-neutron reactor with the capacity of 100 MW with lead-bismuth (liquid metal) coolant (SVBR-100).
Project for design and construction of a pilot power unit with SVBR-100 reactor facility is implemented by public-private partnership OAO AKME Engineering within the framework of the federal target programme “Nuclear power technologies of the new generation for the period of 2010 to 2015 and up to 2020”. It is a project of the Committee for modernization and technological development of Russia’s economy under the President of Russia within the framework of New technological platform: closed nuclear fuel cycle and fast-neutron reactors branch. Construction of experimental operating power unit with SVBR-100 reactor facility is scheduled for 2013-2017, with its actual and energy-generating launch in 2H 2017. The pilot power unit istobecomeaprototypeof mass-produced nuclear facilities for regional and local power systems
