Main building of Beloyarsk Nuclear Power Station as seen from the Beloyarskoye Reservoir near Zarechny, Sverdlovsk Oblast, Russia. Beloyarsk has the largest fast breeder reactor (BN-600) of the world and is currently building another one (BN-800). As of 2007 it is the only commercial nuclear powerplant of the Urals and the oldest Russian commercial nuclear powerplant still in use. Besides the BN-600 it also has 2 older graphite reactors, which were shutdown in the 1980s and 1990s.
