Chernobyl’s New Safe Confinement on track for completion

By Christopher  Booth

Donors to the Chernobyl Shelter Fund have welcomed news that the New Safe Confinement being built to protect damaged Reactor 4 and support long-term decommissioning  is on schedule to be slid into position in November this year. The New Safe Confinement weighs more than 36,000 tonnes and is the largest moveable land-based object ever constructed. The EBRD manages the financing of the project and is the largest single donor to it.
