The spent fuel will be transported from Chornobyl Power Station to the new storage facility in a year.

 hundred year-long spent fuel storage is being built with the use of modern technologies.

The previous 30-year storage was constructed right after the technogenic calamity in 1986.

The spent fuel will be stored with the help of nitrogen and helium. The technology is much more safe that the existing one, according to the project leaders. First blocks with the nuclear fuel will arrive there in November.
