Leningrad NPP is Russia's
Leningrad NPP is Russia's largest nuclear power plant. Watch this video to find out how fresh fuel looks like, why does an NPP need a pond and how tall the tallest cooling tower is.
Is this project 100% Russian built? No technological support from the west? Then Russia is a great technologically advanced country.

The body of a Russian-made reactor was delivered to the construction site of the Akkuyu nuclear power plant in the Turkish province of Mersin on Tuesday.
The reactor pressure vessel was transported for 20 days and travelled more than 3,000 km (1,900 miles) from the Rosatom factory in the Russian city of Volgodonsk to the 'Vostochnyy' cargo terminal, said plant director Sergei Butskikh.
"After customs clearance and incoming controls, the reactor will be delivered for subsequent installation, " Butskikh said.
Standing 12 metres (39 feet) tall and weighing 330 tonnes, the reactor was manufactured in less than three years and passed more than 300 tests.
The nuclear power plant's construction began in the spring of 2018, with the first power unit expected to be operative in 2023. The plant will cover up to 10 percent of Turkey's electricity needs.
SOT, Sergei Butskikh, head of 'Akkuyu' nuclear power plant (Russian): "Today after a long 3,000 km journey the ship arrived at the ‘Vostochnyy’ cargo terminal and delivered a nuclear reactor vessel for the first power unit. This is a very important and exciting moment for us, we have been waiting for it for a long time, this is a key moment in the construction of a nuclear power plant. After customs clearance and incoming controls, the reactor will be delivered for subsequent installation."
