Enterprises of the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone

In the supposedly deserted Chernobyl zone, in fact, work is constantly in full swing: scientists from all over the world are studying the consequences of the accident. Such work requires the appropriate infrastructure.


On the territory of the exclusion zone, nuclear-radiation facilities and a radiation-environmental control and monitoring system are located, which daily measures the level of radiation in several locations at once and the Pripyat River.


In addition, there are infrastructure facilities that are used for decommissioning the nuclear power complex, as well as transferring local territories to an ecologically safe state and disposing of radioactive waste.


For storage of such waste and spent nuclear fuel, several specialized storage facilities are located on the territory of the Zone, and new ones continue to be created.


The most famous is the dry type spent nuclear fuel storage facility (ISF-2), built by the American company Holtec to transport fuel there from its predecessor, ISF-1. The builders estimate that the new storage facility will last about 100 years.


In addition, the site administration plans to build a centralized storage facility for spent nuclear fuel. If the SNF are built to store spent fuel from the Chernobyl NPP, then the SNF will be transported to the SNF from three Ukrainian NPPs: Khmelnytsky, Rivne and South-Ukrainian. Such a storage facility, as conceived by the creators, will become an alternative to using the services of the Russian Federation, to which fuel is now being transported from the indicated nuclear power plants for storage.


Other radioactive waste, which is subject to disposal, is sent to the Vector complex. Unlike spent nuclear fuel, the waste that is sent here can no longer be recycled. They are placed in special containers that are placed in a row. Later, such a row will be concreted and three more will be placed on top in the same way. When the fourth row is filled with concrete, the vault will be buried under clay and earth.


They decided to use the free space of the zone to generate green energy - in 2018, a solar power plant was launched near the Chernobyl nuclear power plant. The power engineers do not plan to stop at this - there are several more solar power plants in the project that will be able to provide energy for the needs of the zone and nearby settlements.

Several PTSs and a couple of armored personnel carriers emit about 20-60 thousand microR per hour. It's all about the “dirty” tracks, which were never washed after the accident.
