Russian President Vladimir Putin has launched energy production at the PIK neutron reactor in the city of St. Petersburg. The PIK neutron reactor project was launched in the early 1970s.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has launched power production at the Pik neutron reactor in St. Petersburg, the country’s second-largest city, which is cited as the world’s largest neutron source, Sputnik Turkey reported.


The GCC neutron reactor is located at the St. Petersburg B.P. Konstantinov Institute of Nuclear Physics, located at the Kurçatov Institute National Research Center, and is the world’s largest source of neutrons.

Vladimir Putin, who attended the ceremony by video conference, said, “I wish you a successful and productive work. I congratulate you on the occasion of Russian Science Day and invite you to a meeting of the Council on Science and Education.” Putin said the institute has important traditions and a unique level of expert training.


The Pİk reactor project was launched in the early 1970s, and 16 years later, in 1986, the first phase of construction of the reactor was completed. The project was revised for safety reasons after the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant disaster in the same year. The PIK neutron reactor project, which undertouted various international inspections, was launched in 2011 with a capacity of 100 W for physical tests.

According to the introduction on the website, what makes the PIK reactor different from its similar; increased neutron flow in the reflector, the presence of a high-flow neutron capacity, and the potential exposure of materials in the active region. Once up and about, the reactor complex will have a neutron source and a dozen experimental stations.
