Eight years ago the President of Belarus laid on the construction of the Belarusian nuclear power plant a capsule with a message to future generations. And here we already anticipated the start of the first unit. Enter the nuclear power plant is a landmark event. We are moving to a new phase of economic efficiency, competitiveness of industry, modernization of the energy sector. We are moving away from dependence on hydrocarbons. And, most importantly, look forward to creating new environmentally friendly technologies and jobs. Belarus may become one of the first States to embrace the stage of green energy. With the launch of the NPP is a topical issue in the most efficient use of electricity. You need to go to the creation of industries, where it is used most effectively. For example, low-tonnage chemistry, small metallurgy. In the same series is the international project of creation of a high-speed highway. Each high-speed train can consume up to 10 MW of electricity. Belarus can act as the main it supplier in all of the highway Minsk – Warsaw – Hamburg. Now in Minsk there are buses. It is necessary to switch to light trucks with a lifting capacity of 1.5 – 2 tons. Such elaboration is already there. You also need to pay more attention to the creation of energy storage. While they are purchased abroad. But there are prerequisites and to obtain good results in the next six months. The Federal government provides an effective framework for the implementation of such innovations. It allows you to combine the Russian industry and Belarusian scientific-technical base.
In the discussion took part Director of the Department of nuclear energy Ministry of Belarus Vasily polyukhovich, head of Department for nuclear and radiation safety of the emergencies Ministry Olga Lugovskaya, the Chairman of ROO “Belaya Rus” Alexander shatko. With the launch of the NPP moves to a new level of the Belarusian-Russian cooperation in one of the most intensive and important areas. This topic was discussed by a leading analyst of the Russian national energy security Fund Igor Yushkov, Professor of the joint Institute for power and nuclear research “Sosny” of NAS of Belarus Vyacheslav Kuvshinov and others.
