Belarusian nuclear power plant is the first nuclear power plant under construction in Belarus. According to the design, there will be two power units with VVER-1200 reactors (V-491 reactor plants) with the capacity of up to 1200 MW per unit.

JSC RASU is in charge of some of the most important I&C elements based on state-of-the-art technology – ULCS (upper-level control system aimed at centralized control of power unit condition and transmission of operator commands related to control of processes and process equipment of the unit), WT I&C (water treatment instrumentation and control system dealing with desalting and providing the optimal chemical composition of the coolant), and PLCS (plant-level control system combining the control systems of each power unit). JSC RASU is responsible for engineering, commissioning and maintenance of these systems throughout the entire lifecycle.

Leningrad NPP-2 was used as a reference project for Belarusian NPP. However, at the design stage a lot of changes were introduced to the design aimed at the use of more up-to-date process control tools and methods. In particular, 3-display operator workstations will be used at Belarusian NPP to control ULCS, and within ULCS there will be 21 operator workstations.

Apart from the ULCS amendments, changes were also introduced to safety systems. Their main component, TPTS-SB platform developed by Russian engineers, is highly competitive with the best foreign analogues in terms of reliability, performance, scope of built-in functions and many other parameters. At Leningrad NPP-2, Teleperm XS is applied, a similar system developed by AREVA.

The architecture and design of individual I&C components were changed in accordance with the requirements of the Belarusian party, with all contractual requirements for safety and reliability remaining unchanged.
