Status of Constructing the New Containment for Chernobyl

Peter Lobner

The reactor accident at Chernobyl  Unit 4 occurred on 26 April 1986.  The  European Bank of Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) is funding a remarkable project to build and install a “permanent” containment structure over the entire damaged unit. This will be the largest movable structure ever constructed.
