Chernobyl Power Plant

Visited in 2015

The completion of the first reactor in 1977 was followed by Reactor 2 (1978), 3 (1981), and 4 (1983). Two more reactors, 5 and 6, capable of producing 1,000 MW each, were under construction at the time of the accident. Reactor 5 was about 70% complete at the time of the accident and was scheduled to start operating in November 7, 1986. Furthermore a 6th reactor was planned in a new block of buildings scheduled to be completed in 1994.

The first construction and installation work on reactor 5 began in 1981. Construction continued throughout the night of the explosion. Construction work was soon stopped but resumed again on the 10th October 1986. Six months later on the 24 April 1987 work was once again halted and the decision was made not to complete the reactors.
