This booklet presents a summary of the characteristics of Soviet-designed nuclear power plants and the accomplishments achieved through September 2000 by the U.S. Department of Energy's cooperative efforts to reduce risk at these plants. It includes information on the 22 Soviet-designed nuclear power plants in nine countries-Armenia, Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Kazakhstan, Lithuania, Russia, Slovakia, and Ukraine-that are participating in these efforts. Not included are the two Soviet-designed nuclear reactors at Finland's Loviisa nuclear power plant. These reactors have been extensively modified by Finnish authorities to be consistent with accepted international safety requirements.

A brief discussion of DOE's safety activities at these plants is provided in the Program Overview section. The next nine sections are organized by country. Each section includes a country profile synopsis, a description of the country's nuclear power program, a map showing the location of the plant(s) within a country, and a summary description of U.S. cooperative efforts to improve safety at the plants.

In addition to providing profiles of the host countries' Soviet-designed nuclear power plants, this booklet contains descriptions and contact information for the Russian International Nuclear Safety Center and for the Ukrainian International Chornobyl Center for Nuclear Safety, Radioactive Waste and Radioecology.

This edition of Soviet-Designed Nuclear Power Plant Profiles updates the January 1999 edition. It is not intended as a comprehensive publication documenting all activities and accomplishments at each site. Other publications should be consulted for more specific technical data. For example, information on the status of DOE's cooperative efforts in Russia and former Soviet Union countries can be found in Improving the Safety of Soviet-Designed Nuclear Power Plants - Status Report, February 2001. Appendix B of this booklet provides a list of key program publications.
