Through the Primorsky Territory there will be a "nuclear transit"

Fresh nuclear fuel and uranium products for nuclear power plants, which are being built by Rosatom in the Asia-Pacific region and the Middle East, are planned to be transported through the Primorsky Territory. The state corporation's plans to use the infrastructure of the DalRAO enterprise in the Fokino Closed Administrative Territory as a transshipment base were announced by the head of the department for the development and implementation of programs for the rehabilitation of nuclear legacy objects in the structure of Rosatom, Alexander Abramov, during a meeting on ensuring radiation and nuclear safety in the Far East chaired by the plenipotentiary of the President of the Russian Federation in the Far Eastern Federal District Yuri Trutnev.

- By 2020, we plan to complete and launch a regional center for the conditioning and long-term storage of radioactive waste in Sysoev Bay, which will help in solving the problem of nuclear heritage in the Far East. In addition, it is planned to use Sysoev Bay as a transport corridor for the delivery of fresh nuclear fuel and uranium products to the countries of the Asia-Pacific Region and the Middle East, where Rosatom is currently implementing its international programs, in particular the construction of nuclear power plants, said Abramov.

The regional center for conditioning and long-term storage of radioactive waste with a capacity of almost 40 thousand cubic meters is going to be built in the near future in Primorye. On November 211, Rosatom Corporation published an auction for design and survey work on the construction of a center for processing and storing radioactive waste worth almost 14 million rubles.

According to the documents, an enterprise for the processing and long-term storage of radioactive waste generated as a result of the disposal of the nuclear fleet of the Pacific Fleet and newly generated waste will appear in the area of ​​the coastal bay of Sysoev of the Closed Territory of Fokino. The sharp public reaction to the proposed construction was caused by the lack of public awareness of Rosatom's plans and caused a lot of prejudice and speculation.

Director of "DalRAO" (customer of the storage project - editor's note) Nikolai Lysenko met with ecologists and assured them that they would not build any "nuclear burial ground" in the closed city of Fokino, but they would build a "center for conditioning and long-term storage of radioactive waste" to clean up Primorye from our own radioactive waste. In order to completely dispel doubts, the director of "DalRAO" agreed to sign a memorandum with environmentalists, guaranteeing the safety of the proposed construction for Primorye residents.
