3 Apr (NucNet): The fourth and last steam generator for Russia’s Leningrad 2-2 nuclear unit under construction at Sosnovy Bor, west of St. Petersburg, has been shipped by manufacturer ZIO-Podolsk, Russian state nuclear corporation Rosatom said.

The 430-tonne steam generator was ready 21 days ahead of schedule due to optimisation of the manufacturing process. It will be transported by train to Serpukhov where it will be loaded onto a ship and brought to the site. There are two VVER-1200/491 reactor units under construction at the Leningrad 2 nuclear station.
