Rosatom through its power generating subsidiary, Rosenergoatom,  achieved a record of $7.01 billion in 2019. In 2019, total revenue from the sale of electric energy generated by Russian nuclear power plants increased by 17.5% on the year, while total nuclear power generation amounted to 208.8 billion kWh, a 2.2% increase on the year.

‘The growth of the electric power production at the nuclear power plants and the revenue increase compared to what was planned in 2019 were stipulated by the early power start-up and commissioning of the Novovoronezh NPP-2 2nd power block, among other things. Also, 2019 marked a huge milestone in the history of the Company and the nuclear power industry in general – the power start-up of the floating nuclear power plant with the designed capacity of 70 megawatt. The same year, the Company launched the largest primary data processing and storage center in Russia – DC ‘Kalininskiy’ next to the Kalinin NPP in the Tver region’, Sergey Migalin, the deputy CEO and the Finance and Economy Director of the Rosenergoatom Joint-Stock Company, said.

In 2020, the power start-up and the low power testing of the innovative Leningrad NPP-2 2nd power block are planned along with the commissioning of the floating NPP.

Nowadays, Rosenergoatom is the largest generating company in Russia and the 2nd one in the world in terms of the amount of nuclear generation capacities. The company is constantly growing and becoming a part of the global digital transformation process.

The Russian NPPs account for 19.4% of the total electricity production in the country. It means that each fifth light bulb in the Russian Federation is powered by a nuclear power plant. Today, Rosenergoatom is the largest power generator in Russia and the second largest in the world in terms of nuclear generating capacity, an important player in the global nuclear power industry, which is successfully developing and embracing a largescale digital transformation.

The share of electricity produced by Russian nuclear power plants in the national energy system in 2019 amounted to 19.4%, with every fifth light bulb in Russia powered by energy generated by nuclear power plants.
