Chernobyl NPP is one of five nuclear power plants of Ukraine. It was finally shut down in 2000 in accordance with international commitments of Ukraine to the G7 countries.

A deferred dismantling strategy was accepted for ChNPP, where the most contaminated equipment of the reactor facility will be preserved and further dismantled after long-term safe enclosure.
