ABSTRACT
The article presents information on Russian Beloyarsk Nuclear Power Plant. The start of commercial operation at Unit I-a 100 MW water-cooled graphite-moderated channel-type reactor-at Beloyarsk Nuclear Power Plant in 1964 marked the birth of the use of nuclear power for commercial purposes in Russia. Beloyarsk is the only nuclear power plant in Russia with different types of nuclear power units. The Beloyarsk nuclear plant is equipped with a training simulator which simulates both the plant's processes and operation in the event of an emergency.
