You’ll have an opportunity to see the creation of the service competence for the Northern sea route, the launch of the first world floating nuclear power plant”.
For the reference:
Throughout its history, the nuclear industry has solved extremely difficult technical tasks, literally building technologies from the ground up. This would be impossible without highly skilled engineers and workers. Blue collars have always been the basis of ROSATOM. Today, the industry involves more than 115 thousand workers, or about 45% of the total number of the nuclear labor force. ROSATOM's annual participation in the WorldSkills Hi-Tech helps industry employees not only to improve their skills, but also to enhance the prestige of blue collar jobs.
ROSATOM team became the winner of the medal count at the WorldSkills Hi-Tech championship three years on end. ROSATOM team competed in 8 categories and took 6 gold, 1 silver and 2 bronze medals, which made it the team scoring winner at WorldSkills Hi-Tech-2015. At WorldSkills Hi-Tech-2016, ROSATOM team won 6 gold, 3 silver medals and 1 bronze medal (and became the 1-st in the team scoring). ROSATOM team took a total of 8 gold, 2 silver medals and one bronze medal at WorldSkills Hi-Tech-2017.
