Unit 4 is scarcely recognizable from the west, with the technological building of the New Safe Confinement nearing completion (left). The old western counterforce wall that keeps the Sarcophagus from collapsing is behind it. The striped ventilation chimney is a diminutive, offset version of the original. About the only original plant structure visible here is the western end of the deaerator building.
