Only a few countries possess fast neutron reactor technology, with Russia leading the world in the field. The Beloyarsk Nuclear Power Station is currently preparing to launch the BN-800 fast reactor.
The advanced-design Tianwan Nuclear Power Station was constructed by the Russian Atomstroyexport nuclear service and equipment giant. According to International Atomic Energy Agency's (IAEA) experts, it is among the world's safest operational nuclear power plants.
Tianwan's first and second reactors were launched in 2007.
