“We have a huge need for personnel.

All this rustling of the wind about some kind of closure of Rosatom projects in the world does not mean anything.

We will need to build 40 blocks in the next 15 years.

For a thousand people per block, we need 40 thousand specialists, ”TASS quotes him.

The corporation "now has 20% of nuclear generation," he said.

“Vladimir Vladimirovich (Putin. -


) says that 20 is not enough, let's at least 25.

We need to build 20 more blocks, and I don’t count floating stations, small ones ... Do you understand how many personnel are in Russia and abroad?”

Likhachev said.

As the press service of Rosatom specified, the state corporation is currently building 34 power units, they are at different stages of construction.

Earlier, the Turkish Ministry of Energy announced the launch of the first power unit of the Akkuyu NPP, which is being built by the Russian state corporation Rosatom, in 2023.

Also in April, the reactor vessel was installed in the design position at the third power unit of the Kudankulam NPP in India.

In addition, the Russian-Kyrgyz Development Fund reported on the plans of Rosatom Central Asia to build several small hydropower plants in Kyrgyzstan.
