    Grossi plans 3rd visit to Zaporozhye NPP

    June 3, 2023 - Interfax Russia & CIS General Newswire


      BRUSSELS. June 2 (Interfax) - The director general of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), Rafael Grossi, intends to visit the Zaporozhye Nuclear Power Plant (NPP) in the near future for the third time, the agency said in a statement.

      "With the establishment of the five principles and my intention to report about any violations it is important that I travel to the plant again to assess developments there since my last visit in late March," Grossi said.

      The previous visits were on September 1, 2022, and March 29, 2023.

      Last Tuesday Grossi told the UN Security Council that the safety situation at the NPP remained unstable. He then urged Russia and Ukraine to observe the NPP safety principles, including by refraining from hostilities around the facility.

      The Zaporozhye NPP, the largest nuclear power plant in Europe, operates six VVER-1000 power units. The plant has not produced electricity since September 11, 2022. Five reactors are in cold shutdown, and one is in hot shutdown to meet the plant's needs.

      Several IAEA specialists have been on duty at the NPP since September 1, 2022. They rotate approximately once a month.
