Brussels wants to close the Armenian NPP

73
Brussels still insists on closing the Armenian (Metsamor) NPP, reports Kommersant referring to the deputy head of the Eastern Partnership in the European External Action Service (EEAS, EU MFA) Dirk Lorenz.




It is impossible to improve it so that it fully complies with international safety requirements,
said a European official.

The newspaper recalls that under the agreement with the EU on a comprehensive and extended partnership (CEPA) of 24 in November 2017, Yerevan pledged to bring its regulations into line with EU standards. “This also applies to nuclear safety: the decommissioning of the Metsamor NPP is a key goal in EU cooperation with Armenia. The EEAS awaits proposals from Yerevan on the relevant "road map", ”the article says.

The Armenian NPP was commissioned in the 1980 year (2 unit with reactors of 440 MW), it was stopped in the 1989 year after the Spitak earthquake. This caused an acute energy crisis in the country, and the nuclear power plants were again launched in 1995 year. Now only the second unit (407,5 MW) is operating, providing more than 40% of Armenia’s electricity needs. The construction of a new block of funds in the republican treasury was not found.

Yerevan’s position on the nuclear power plant looks cautious. A press secretary of the Ministry of Energy, Vasak Tarposhyan, confirmed that following the results of the negotiations with the EU, it was “clearly formulated” that Yerevan “should develop a roadmap” of the dismantling of the nuclear power plant. However, according to him, this “requires a certain time, and it is obvious that the nuclear power plant should stop working at a certain moment”.

Tarposhyan added that for the time being the “program to extend the life of the power unit by ten years (up to 2026 year)” is being implemented. The funds were given by Russia in the form of a loan of $ 270 million and a grant of $ 30 million. Rosatom structures are implementing the program.

    While working, it is better not to touch the nuclear power plant. In the 2018 year, for example, the 45 years of the Novovoronezh station are celebrated. The main thing is to make repairs on time. Moreover, in 2015 Armenia was already electrified, due to the increase in tariff prices due to the unplanned shutdown of the Armenian NPP for 88 days.

          To my great regret, you are right. Yes, you need to close the stupid immigration. Yes, we must loudly declare that the Russians are the first to be accepted into Russia.

        politicians live on their planet.


        But even politicians cannot get around the issue of money. And they need:
        1) the first millions of dollars to stop a nuclear power plant. It is not as simple as it seems. It is necessary to shut off the reactor, unload the fuel, take it out, drain the radioactive liquid from the first cooling circuit, take it out
        2) second million dollars in compensation leaving capacities. Now Armenia buys electricity from its own local currency, and will have to buy from outside, for example from Russia. Where can she get a lot of currency at once?
        3) the third million dollars for the dismantling of the core and other equipment. Nobody in the world will take it for nothing, the Armenians themselves will not do it, in fact we can only, as a developing country. Moreover, there is a significant part of the equipment "phonite", so the station needs to be "kept" for years under guard in a "coma" state.
        4) fourth million dollars for land reclamation. Well, do not leave concrete ruins in place of the station, they also need to be demolished at least. And there the volume of work is not sickly.
        5) the fifth million dollars to compensate for retired capacities in the event of increased consumption and emergency situations. We need to build something for the future. And what? A bunch of CHP? Whose money is it for? And what to buy fuel for?

        That is, even if politicians really want to, they need to take money somewhere for this. Do you think the EEC will give? I strongly doubt that the EEC, even Lithuania, did not compensate for the full closure of the Ingalinsk NPP. “There is no money” is an objective reality, like a wall 6 meters high, which, no matter how many you hold, do not jump over.

    It is useless to make concessions to Brussels. Once they succumb, then again they don’t like something and again they will demand to close / give in / buy. It’s like ransomware.

That's why he left for Russia. He doesn’t drink (almost :-) he doesn’t smoke at all, tall, lean, probably handsome :-), really anybody would be glad to such a neighbor / friend.

Unfortunately, after a couple of phone losses (one was stolen, one died out of the blue), his phone was also lost in mnu. if he finds me he will be very glad.

      but when I was studying at the institute there was also an Armenian, Armen A., an arrogant, intelligent, but not complex greyhound individual. He constantly said to a couple of girls - “why should they study?” Let them get married, give birth and stay at home - where are you going? ”

    Why is this a European partnership if it is only to the detriment, European values ​​are not ours. And if everything is due to finances, it’s easier for the diaspora to ask for more money and without enslaving conditions. Apparently, Armenia will also play out soon, but it’s a pity because it is not limited only to Yerevan, in towns and cities there are ordinary people who all this policy to one place.

    Europe decided to lower Armenia into darkness? This is a good deal! Armenia should think with whom to be friends, and whom to send on foot. Friendship with Europe has not made anyone richer. The Armenian government clearly decided to disperse the remaining Armenians from Armenia around the world.

    From the point of view of the EU, everything is very correct. The fact is that the Metsamor NPP is the brainchild of the USSR. It was created with the calculation of the supply of at least three Transcaucasian republics (with full power and operation of all reactors). Geopolitical changes since 1988 have doomed the nuclear power plant. At the moment, nuclear power plants are operating at a loss to Russia (!). Armenia, with guarantees of energy security from the EU, does not need it at all, it even to some extent plays the role of a "powder keg" under ..., as well as in a nodule like the Caucasus, it is undesirable (for one reason or another). I think the Armenians will benefit if they favor closing the nuclear power plant. The Republic of Armenia itself is half empty (demography), and production capacities are not the same as in the USSR and there is no demand for production energy. Although, even with the aforementioned nuclear power plants in some regions of the Republic of Armenia, there is a significant lack of electric energy))

      This is the EU, it is not needed, therefore, they are ready to promise any "guarantees", if only they would ruin the energy industry and put the country on a hungry energy ration.

      And what will happen after the destruction ???

    Brussels wants to close the Armenian NPP
    For Brussels (count for Americans) the most important thing is to deprive the state of the entire or almost the entire economy and completely subjugate it to yourself. Obviously! The Armenians will need to think carefully about this.

    The Armenians of the EU like a cow saddle. Such weak economies in the EU suck dry and into the furnace. Without a nuclear power plant in Armenia, industry and agriculture threaten the thick northern fox, since the cost of buying electricity on the side, as well as the construction of alternative sources, prohibitively increase the cost of production, and the communal apartment at the same time. Who needs their products in the EU, and so on, except for raw materials, and after rising in price it may become an illiquid asset in the market.

    to fully comply with international safety requirements,

    We know your "requirements" ... It would be better if they banned it in Ukraine, where the devil knows what’s going on at the nuclear power plant!
    And gentlemen do not worry about the Armenian NPP, everything is under control there .. (or is Azerbaijan complaining ???)))

      Partly you are right, two Turkic entities in all instances require the closure of nuclear power plants. But sooner or later it will be necessary to close, the EU is investing in alternative energy sources in Armenia. And until they cover all the need for electricity, the nuclear power plants will not be closed.
      I don’t understand why Russia is not building nuclear power plants in Armenia on the same conditions as in Turkey. In general, the decision to build in Akku, this is a betrayal of the interests of Russia, is simply perplexing. In fact, we are creating our own hands another hostile nuclear power, with time, of course.

        Turkey pays and a member of NATO (for the time being ..))) NPPs are high technology and cleaner than space exploration .. Whoever built, all the flags in their hands ..

    At one time, I was familiar with one of the developers of the 1st unit of the Armenian NPP (in the mid-80s and early 90s). In 1988, they worked to the full extent on the development of technical specifications for another 2 similar power units. And then Gorbachev came, perestroika, publicity and everything went to dust. In Armenia, industry simply disappeared ... But recently, Armenians have begun to fuss about the restoration of industrial production. In this context, the collisions from Brussels are not at all surprising. What do they want there visible on the example of Ukraine ...

    In general, when something happened to the reactor and shook it (back in the days of the USSR), courageous Armenian nuclear scientists together rushed home to rescue their families, sniffing a wind rose in order to know where the wind was blowing from. I don’t remember where, but, it seems - from the Northern Fleet, atomic specialists were called. Arrived three hours later, burst into an empty nuclear power plant, quickly figured out everything, carefully, but as soon as possible secured the reactor. AND? The IAEA, of course, knows about this. I read about it in the press (publicity! Perestroika!). Someone remembered in Brusel ... They would have drowned Ukraine too, but they do not need Ukraine in the EU. And an associative member, he is the very associative one and laid down on everyone, since hundreds of billions do not give!

    Yerevan’s position regarding nuclear power plants looks cautious. Ministry of Energy spokesman Vasak Tarposhyan confirmed that following negotiations with the EU, it’s “clearly stated” that Yerevan “should develop a roadmap” for dismantling the nuclear power plant.

    Funny as children, these Armenians.
    Armenia can be on a par with the EU only on its knees !! There is Baltic experience where, after closing, they immediately became dependent on energy exports and lenders. They drove themselves under the bench, but the Russians wiped their nose, they are now tearing toilets not somewhere, but in the EU !!

    You can love communism and communists, you can not love. This is a personal matter for everyone! But everyone needs to study the teachings of Marx. I believe that the study of the works of Marx and Engels should be introduced as a separate subject in high school. Not for communism or socialism to triumph in the world, but for people to understand the true purpose of any initiative.
    But the true goal is one: DIABLE !!!!!
    It seems that the Armenian leadership either does not understand (which is doubtful), or he does not care about the plebs. And the beneficiaries of the closure of the Metsamor NPP will be more gentlemen from Brussels, to a lesser extent the leaders of Armenia, but not the ordinary population.
    And the most dangerous thing for the residents of Armenia is a departure from the “pro-Russian” orientation. In this case, their neighbors will divide it, like Poland in the 19th century.
    But Russia will again suffer not huge, but still losses.
