MINSK, 6 December (BelTA) – The Russian state nuclear industry corporation Rosatom will help train 600 specialists for the Belarusian nuclear power plant, BelTA learned from Valery Karezin, Educational Projects Director at Rosatom's Human Resources Department, on 6 December.

Training highly-qualified personnel for the sake of safe and effective operation of the nuclear power plant is part of the contract on building the Belarusian nuclear power plant. Valery Karezin explained that in line with the contract the Russian side will have to train 600 Belarusian specialists, including 431 operators, 128 maintenance and repair technicians, and 41 engineering support specialists and instructors.

The education process (theory, on-the-job training, and practice) will take place both in Belarus and Russia. Some 100 specialists have already finished their training process so far.

On-the-job training for operators at operating nuclear power plants is an important part of the training process. The most advanced power-generating unit in commission has been selected for it — a VVER-1200 Generation III+ unit at the Novovoronezh nuclear power plant.

As many as 261 specialists of the Belarusian nuclear power plant were supposed to get on-the-job training at the Novovoronezh nuclear power plant in 2016-2017, with 72 specialists trained in 2016 and 139 specialists trained in 2017. As many as 47 specialists are in the process of on-the-job training now. The final group of specialists will arrive on 4 December. Thus, this year's planned number of Belarusian nuclear power plant specialists will be trained at the Novovoronezh nuclear power plant.

The payroll of the Belarusian nuclear power plant will include a total of 2,321 specialists.
