Voronezh Nuclear district heating plant (Voronezh AST, VAST) is a nuclear heating plant consisting of two AST-500 (500MWth) nuclear heating reactors. VAST was developed for the central heating system of the city of Voronezh, Russia.
The construction works were conducted from 1983 to 1990. The maintenance works stopped in 1990.
In 2020-2021 the dismantling of unfinished and an abandoned building is underway. At the end of September 2020, we shared photos of the demolition and dismantling process on the site.
Below is a short video of the dome’s directed explosion of the Voronezh Nuclear District Heating Plant.
