CHERNOBYL NPP

On April 26, 1986, a sad event happened at a Ukrainian nuclear power plant. The explosion of the reactor caused the release into the atmosphere of a large number of harmful radioactive substances for all living things. The history of nuclear energy has not seen such a massive and so devastating accident in terms of the number of victims. The adjacent territory has become the “Zone of Exclusion.”

More than 100 thousand people left their homes during the evacuation of residents. More than half a million people took part in the aftermath of the Chernobyl Chernobyl accident. Now the reactor of the nuclear power plant is protected by a sarcophagus. But even such a large and durable construction requires constant attention of specialists and needs almost constant restoration.

SARCOPHAGUS

The fourth power unit needed a Shelter. The design, which was built to protect the environment from the effects of destructive radiation, in the common people received the name “Sarcophagus”. The construction of the Sarcophagus took a little more than 200 days after the disaster itself – it is incredibly fast, given the scale and complexity of the design. About 90 thousand people took part in the construction of the Shelter. Years go by and the construction needs to be supported by permanent restoration.

COOLING TOWER

Cooling towers are a very familiar structure that is used to cool water at thermal power plants and nuclear power plants. The Chernobyl cooling tower can be seen at a long distance. Visit the city of Chernobyl as part of tours from the SPHERE TOUR agency and see with your own eyes how large the size of the unfinished giants could be. Their failed mission was to cool the reactors of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant.
