The FNPP, built to withstand tsunamis and crashes with icebergs, and which is currently in trial operation in the town of Pevek in Russia's Chukotka Region, has supplied more than 21 million kWh of electricity to the isolated network of the Chaun-Bilibino energy system as on February 26, according to Rosatom

Akademik Lomonosov is expected to be commissioned in the summer of this year after additional tests and the permit to be issued by Russia's nuclear energy watchdog Rostekhnadzor.
