Public meetings recently were held throughout Ukraine relating to the implementation of the Complex (Consolidated) Safety Upgrade Program of Power Units of Ukrainian Nuclear Power Plants (CCSUP).

Those who attended these sessions learned about the details on CCSUP funding, but staff from both Energoatom and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) said the CCSUP has not been finalized. Loans from the EBRD and Euroatom total approximately $638.2 million.

Public meetings on the program's details took place at nuclear plants across the country, including the Rivne Nuclear Power Plant (NPP), the South-Ukraine NPP Information Center and the the Khmelynytska NPP Information Center. Concerns about social and economic obligations were discussed among representatives for the project and those that were in attendance, including local authorities and residents. Many participating in the discussions expressed interest in further cooperation with Energoatom and the project through community health care and modernization of nuclear facilities.

The goal of the CCSUP is to develop nuclear-generation technology; improve safety and operations; and enhance environmental protection in line with international standards. The announcement also said the project falls in line with the national energy strategy developed by the Ukrainian government through 2030.
