2000 START-UP OF TEMELIN NPP, UNIT 1 (CZECH REPUBLIC)
Czechoslovak organizations based on Soviet technical designs develop working documentation of the specified equipment. In order to solve and coordinate technical and technological issues that arise in the process of cooperation in the development of design and technical documentation, Czechoslovak and Soviet specialists will systematically exchange information and have the necessary consultations. The contribution of Soviet organizations and specialists is highly appreciated by the government of the Czech Republic. The cooperation of OKB “GIDROPRESS” and other Soviet organizations with Czechoslovakia in technical assistance for the construction of WWER-440, WWER-1000 nuclear power plants and creation of an industrial base for manufacturing equipment for WWER reactor plants was supplemented with research activities.

2006 START-UP OF TIANWAN NPP, UNIT1 (CHINA)
Two power Units of Tianwan NPP in China were constructed on the basis of the nuclear power plant based on WWER-1000 reactor plant (V-428) design. V-428 reactor plant is a further development of the serial reactor plant V-320 with the necessary modifications and improvements of the evolutionary equipment based on the operating experience of all WWER reactors for more than 800 reactor years. During designing, all relevant measures were taken in accordance with the modernization program of existing WWER-1000; IAEA recommendations to improve safety of existing WWER-1000 as well as the requirements of the current scientific and technical standards of Russia were followed. As a result of the work performed by OKB “GIDROPRESS” on the V-428 reactor plant, China's regulatory bodies issued a permit for construction of Tianwan NPP.
