Russia’s Rostov-3 VVER-1000 pressurised water reactor unit was connected to the grid on 27 December 2014, state nuclear power station operator Rosenergoatom said.

Construction of Rostov-3, near the city of Volgodonsk in southwest Russia, began in 2009. The Rostov station already has two VVER-1000 pressurised water reactor units in commercial operation, Rostov-1 and Rostov-2. Rostov-3 and Rostov-4 will use the same technology and have a capacity of 1,011 megawatts each.
