In the design it is provided for: double containment of the reactor compartment, four fully independent and space-divided safety system channels, up-to-date numerical I&C system, main equipment materials that ensure the required mechanical features over the design service life.
For the first time in the world practice the corium catchers were installed in the in-vessel space; it is the devices for corium retention to eliminate the consequences of the beyond design-basis accidents.
