Loji Nuklear Kalininskaya NPP, Rusia

The Kalininskaya NPP is located in the Tver Region near the city o Udomlya (it’s about 300 km from Moscow). Its construction began in 1974. Ten years later the first unit was finished. Now there are 4 of them (it’s well seen in the picture). The last one is still being constructed though.

All of them have concrete domes and this is the main difference from Fukushima I which didn’t actually have any serious protection.
