Chernobyl Turbine Hall, November 2016 » dscf5374_v1

Feedwater pump well in Unit 2, ChNPP

Feedwater pumps belonging to Unit 2 at ChNPP. A fire in 1991 cause the turbine hall roof to fall on the pumps, disabling them all (and their emergency backups). The damage was repaired and the protective metal roof seen here was installed over the feedwater pump well to prevent a recurrence of similar accidents. However, Unit 2 was never operated again.
