The statement said the next major construction task is to complete underground columns for the foundation of the turbine unit.
Construction of the first unit, Kursk 2-1, began in April 2018. Construction of Kursk 2-2 began in April 2019.
The Generation III+ VVER-TOI technology being used for Kursk 2-1 and Kursk 2-2 was developed from the 1,200 MW AES-2006 pressurised water reactor.
Commissioning of the two units at Kursk 2 is scheduled to be synchronised with the decommissioning of Units 1 and 2 at the existing Kursk station after 2021 and 2022.
The existing Kursk station has four RBMK-1000 graphite-moderated nuclear reactor units (LWGRs) that began commercial operation between October 1977 and February 1986.
