The Khmelnitskiy and Rivne plants has a combined output of 5.5 GW. These nuclear plants will help Ukraine reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 20 pe cent below 1990 levels. Its Intended Nationally Determined Contribution has set a target to cap greenhouse gas emissions at 60 per cent of 1990 levels by 2030, and the continued efficient operation of these nuclear plants will help achieve that target.

AtomRemontServis is a subsidiary of NNEGC Energoatom, the owner and operator of all nuclear power plants in Ukraine, which account for nearly half of the country’s energy supply.

Vitaliy Shikun, Director of AtomRemontServis, said: “AtomRemontServis is committed to delivering reliable nuclear power for Ukraine in support of the country’s clean energy goals. We look forward to working with GE as our service partner on the generators at Khmelnitskiy and Rivne nuclear power plants.”
