BN-600 license may be extended to 2025

The operating license of the BN-600 fast neutron reactor can be extended for five more years. In April 2010 the reactor received approval to operate until 2020. Director of the Beloyarsk Nuclear Power Plant, which operates the reactor, suggested that the lifetime of the reactor can be extended until 2025. The plant, however, would have to implement some measures to satisfy the regulators.
