The NSC project should be completed by the end of 2017, but the NSC itself should be moved over the reactor in november this year.

The goal of the NSC is to prevent any accident happening to the existing sarcophagus, to dismantle it and to remove as much radioactive material as possible. It won't improve the surrounding environment, but it will ensure that it won't worsen.

Update from ChNPP. Next week will be the 30th anniversary of the disaster, so we can expect some media coverage on the NSC.

It's quite incredible how the buildings look in fine condition from the outside, after 30 years abandoned.

Today is 26 April 2016. It is thirty years since this disaster occurred. I was 15 when it happened and remember it well.

Oh, I know.

I was just referencing the fact that there's a lot more on that site that is hazardous than some rebar that will be covered in concrete.

ChNPP posted a video update, once again in ukrainian.



For those interested, the Wumag Palfinger WT1000 which has been working on site for the past two years got sent back to Germany for maintenance a few months ago and should be coming back on site very soon. In the meantime, a Bronto Skylift S104 HLA arrived from Spain to work on the NSC. Here it is in action :



There has been some progress on the west-side cladding, here's a webcam screenshot.



And finally, a picture from Alexander Kvasha, found on vk.com/pripyat_association.
