The commissioning of the Belarusian NPP has been postponed for two years, until 2022.

The changes to the comprehensive plan for the development of the electric power sector until 2022 were made by the government decree No. 582 of October 6, 2020. The document has been officially published on the National Legal Internet Portal.

Also, the construction period for peak-reserve energy sources has been extended until 2022. According to the new document, they will be built only on the basis of gas turbine plants.

The launch of the first power unit of the BelNPP is scheduled for November 7 this year.
