ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the technological developments that have taken place in the nuclear power generation capability in the Soviet Union. The Soviet Union put several atomic power stations into operation with a total capacity of 1.5 million kilowatts upto 1970. The rise in real cost of every additional unit of organic fuel extracted and of the electricity produced from it has contributed to the steadily rising economic role of atomic power stations. In the current period the Soviet Union is making wide use of the channel-type reactor which is referred to as the Soviet type in other countries. This type of reactor has allowed the Soviet Union in the development of power generating units of even greater unit capacity.
