Bilibino - northernmost nuclear power plant in the world

Bilibino is Russia’s only nuclear power heating plant. It also is the only NPP in the world beyond the arctic circle. The plant is quite small and safer than most soviet-era nuclear facilities in Russia, as stated by the US-State of Alaska commission who were invited to a safety examination of the site in 1993. The plant is indeed situated in the Chukotka peninsula, at the north-eastern end of Siberia, just across the Bering Straits from Alaska. The plant's goal is as much to generate heat for the local mining town as to produce electricity : this part of Oriental Siberia is said the coldest inhabited place on Earth.
