MOSCOW, August 29 (RIA Novosti) - The fourth power-generating unit of the Balakovskaya nuclear power plant (BNPP) on the Volga River became operational August 28 after being repaired, the BNPP press service said.

The BNPP, Russia's main producer of electric energy, puts out over 28 billion kWh of power a year, accounting for a quarter of the electric power produced in the Volga Federal District and one-fifth of the energy produced by Russia's nuclear power plants.

The press service said all four energy units were now in operation at the power plant. There are four main power-generating units with the VVER-1000 reactors at the BNPP. The units were put into operation in the late 1980s to early 1990s.
