MINSK, 22 July (BelTA) – Belarusian nuclear power plant is now connected to Minsk and Smorgon with high-voltage lines, BelTA learned from the Belarusian national electric company Belenergo.

The 330kV switchgear of the Belarusian nuclear power plant has been put under voltage up on 18-20 July, and the 330kV high-voltage lines BelNPP – Minsk Severnaya have been switched into the transit mode to ensure overflow of power.

This 330kV switchgear of the Belarusian nuclear power plant is connected to the energy grid by three 330kV high-voltage transmission lines: BelNPP – Postavy-1 substation, BelNPP - Minsk Severnaya substation, BelNPP – Smorgon substation.

The Belarusian nuclear power plant is being built using a Russian design featuring VVER-1200 reactors near Ostrovets, Grodno Oblast. The first power-generating unit is scheduled for commissioning in 2019, with the second one to go online in 2020.
