Ceremony marks key milestone in international project to transform site of 1986 accident
A ceremony in Chernobyl today marked the successful conclusion of the sliding operation, a key milestone before the fi nalisation of the international programme to transform Chernobyl into an environmentally safe and secure state by November 2017.
Thirty years after the nuclear disaster in Chernobyl, the radioactive remains of the power plant’s destroyed reactor 4 have been safely enclosed following one of the world’s most ambitious engineering projects.

Chernobyl’s giant New Safe Confi nement (NSC) was moved over a distance of 327 metres from its assembly point to its fi nal resting place, completely enclosing a previous makeshift shelter that was hastily assembled immediately after the 1986 accident.
The structure was built by Novarka, a consortium of the French construction firms VINCI Construction and Bouygues Construction. Works started in 2010.
