Metal Framework Falling in Nuclear Plant in Sosnovy Bor Aid to Reveal Violations

On July 17there was a fall of the metal framework which was being erected around one of the would-be power units of the nuclear power plant Leningradskaya in the vicinity of St. Petersburg in Sosnovy Bor. As a result of the accident no one was hurt but this incident showed that there are plenty of faults and technical regulations violations in the construction.

There have been no such accidents in the course of nuclear power plant construction in Russia as well as in the USSR, because there existed a strict control over each construction stage.

And of course it was entirely impossible to employ unskilled labor in the construction of such strategically important objects as a nuclear power plant while in Sosnovy Bor the construction engaged migrant workers from Ukraine and Belarus.

Oleg Bodrov, the physicist and the head of the eco-organization “Zeleny Mir” (Green World) who resides in Sosnovy Bor, points out that the workers live in the conditions which are unsuitable for normal living, they work 12 hours a day and in such situation you can hardly expect them to have reliable attitude towards their work.

Besides, a nuclear power plant is a state secret and therefore hiring foreign citizens as workers at its construction site is simply not allowed.

The experts of Rosatom state company complained about the incompetence of the workers engaged in the construction of Leningradskaya nuclear power plant-2 already a month ago. They suggested reinforcement of the object using rigid armoring but their voice was not heard.

As a result the metal framework first got distorted and then due to the blasts of wind it collapsed. There were no victims only because of the fact that a couple of minutes prior to the incident the workers went away for a lunch break.

Now the contractor will have to fulfill a large-scale job of restoring the damaged wall segment of the would-be power generating unit, it is also necessary to find out whether the four-meter concrete layer has remained intact.
