Experts of the organization "Ukrenergomontazh" has completed the construction of a protecting circuit at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant necessary for the installation of a new arched shelter over the fourth power, soobshil the press service of building Corporation " ukrbud ".
"Today over one of the most difficult stages of construction of concrete structures of the walls... the development of the enclosing contour for the successful implementation of the project is More important than the construction of the arch itself. Together with her fresh make the most of the new safe confinement, which will protect people from radiation for a hundred years, "– quoted by news Agency General Director of the organization "Ukrenergomontazh" Michael Borodavko.

The accident at the fourth unit of Chernobyl happened 30 years ago – the night of 26 April 1986. Due to the destruction of the reactor core radioactive contamination of not less than 200 thousand Square kilometers, mostly in Ukraine, Belarus and Russia. The devoted work of the liquidators who cleaned the roof from "fonyaschih" of the wreckage and blew off the release of radioactive materials into the groundwater, allowed in November 1986 to complete the object "Shelter" – 1st concrete sarcophagus height of not less than 50 meters. He holds More than 95% of the fuel of the destroyed reactor, as well as about 70 thousand tons of radioactive metal, concrete and vitrified mass, tens of tons of radioactive dust.
