Завод Юпитер – Jupiter Factory

Zavodska Street 11, Pripyat

Visited in 2014 + 2015

The Jupiter factory in Pripyat used to make cassette recorders and household appliances. On the walls I found many posters reminding people that safe and hard work are a good thing.

Even today it is still not known for sure what products came off the secret assembly line in the cellars. The story goes they were developing and assembling military computers, black boxes and even ammunition. During my visit the cellars were flooded and the dosimeter went into red, I had to skip it.

Following the disaster in 1986 the factory housed radiology laboratories used to test decontamination techniques and dosimetry equipment. The laboratories functioned up until 1996 at which point the factory was abandoned for good.
