Russian Nuclear Power Plant Control Room

at 8:23 am. Filed under Insane Equipment


This is an interesting look inside a Russian Nuclear Power Plant Control Room. It was completed in 1990 after a 8 years of construction. Even though it wasn’t built yesterday I am surprised that it doesn’t have more computer screens to monitor the status of the plant. If you like dials, buttons and lights you would be completely at home in this control room!

"Because this powerplant was completed after the Chernobyl, they paid a special attention to secure it from alike accidents. There is even a saying that The sci-fi writers are on the second place by richness of imagination, the first place is occupied by the nuclear plant security engineers, meaning that they need to make it safe just for some unimaginable events that not very likely to happen, but still the security system should be ready for them. The outside structure that secures reactors themselves can stand the blast that exceeds ten times the power of atomic bomb blast, just imagine."

    Wow, That last array of buttons looks like scrabble board. I wonder who works there are remembers all the row-column codes to function mappings(if it works that way)

    Hi TMaYaD,

    It does look like a scrabble board. 🙂 I wonder if they would notice if I rearranged some of the indicator caps?

    I think the Russians always do things more old school. They may not be good at super new technologies, but they do master the old ones. I remember reading that some of their MIG fighters were built from a steel alloy instead of titanium. This steel alloy required special welding techniques that only they had.

    That site has some amazing pictures. I spent at least an hour today browsing it.

    The Russian Migs also used old electric stuff.
    Like amplifying tubes which rendered them immune against the EM-wave from a atomic bomb.

    So the american ones would drop out of the sky while the Russian ones still would be functional.

    I think is good it is more human controlled, imagine a Blue Screen of the Death on a Nuclear Plant! (Win) Or a Kernel Panic! (Linux)
    Mac would do an iNuclearPlant XD

    If it was completed in 1990 after 8 years of construction, you have to realize it was designed 10 – 12 years before that.

    1980 — there weren’t a lot of computer screens in use for control systems.

    Yes, but that is not funny.
