The Chornobyl Nuclear Power Plant state specialized enterprise has invited a tender on construction works at New Safe Confinement for UAH 4.3 billion.

This is said in the tender documents of the state enterprise posted in the ProZorro electronic system of public procurements, Ukrainian News Agency reports.

The tender concerns construction works at the facility New Safe Confinement, demolishing of unstable structures of the Shelter Facility of the Chornobyl NPP state specialized enterprise, and some other works.

The expected cost of the procurement is UAH 4,290,583,472.

The deadline for applications is July 23, 2018.

The start of the auction is on August 28, 2018.

The period for supplies, works and provision of services is from the date of the future contract to December 2027.

As Ukrainian News Agency reported, the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) recently announced that the process of sliding the arched structure that will cover the Chornobyl nuclear power plant's reactor No. 4 that was destroyed in 1986 into place has been completed.

The New Safe Confinement is the largest moveable land-based structure ever built, with a span of 257 meters, a length of 165 meters, a height of 108 meters, and a total weight of 36,000 tons.

The construction of the New Safe Confinement started in 2012 after extensive preparatory works on the ground.

The arch-shaped structure is fitted with an overhead crane to allow for the future dismantling of the existing shelter and the remains of the reactor No. 4.

The New Safe Confinement has a lifespan of at least 100 years, and it will cost EUR 1.5 billion.

The explosion of the Chornobyl nuclear power plant's fourth reactor on April 26, 1986 was the worst man-caused disaster in history.
