26 April 2011 marks the 25th anniversary of the accident at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant when reactor 4 exploded. Since then Ukraine and the international community have been working continuously on overcoming the legacy of the accident and converting Chernobyl into a safe and secure site.  Today two major technical tasks remain:

  • The first is to make the destroyed unit 4 environmentally safe.
  • The second is to safely and securely store the spent nuclear fuel from reactors 1 – 3.

A new confinement and storage facility is helping to secure the site of the 1986 accident
