Abstract

The key competitive advantage of the Rosatom State Corporation on the world nuclear energy market is an integrated offer of a range of services, including construction, operation and maintenance of NPPs abroad for the entire life cycle up to 60 years, adopted for new projects with VVER-1200 reactors. In the long term, a significant expansion of the scale of international business is planned, which is reflected in the target indicators of Rosatom State Corporation and its organizations. Russia is a recognized world leader in the development of fast neutron reactors. To date, the technology of sodium fast reactors BN successfully demonstrated and entered the stage of commercialization. Russia is the only country in the world that has in its nuclear power structure operating BN 600 and BN 800 fast reactors. Technologies of fast reactors and closed nuclear fuel cycle, subject to their commercialization, may become one of the main export products of the Russian nuclear energy industry. Therefore, the leadership of the Rosatom State Corporation has set the task of developing the conditions for entering Russian NPPs with fast reactors the world nuclear energy markets.
