Leningrad NPP to export its nuclear energy to EU

Publish date: August 24, 2004

A new high-voltage electric cable on the bottom of the Finnish Gulf should connect Mussalo in Finland and Kernovo settlement in Leningrad region, Russia, in order to export nuclear energy from the Leningrad NPP to Finland.

The specialists believe it is a complicated task to lay a 150 km cable in the Baltic where plenty of arms is buried during the war time. The Navy Navigation-Hydrographic Recearch Institute is working on the safe route for the cable. The project’s price tag is $200m. The cable will be listed in the Register of the Ministry of Emergencies as “potentially dangerous installation”, Rosbalt reported.
