Norwegian government to allocate money to Murmansk region for nuclear safety projects

Before the end of the year the Norwegian government will allocate 15.5 million crones to the Murmansk region, situated on the Kola peninsula, for nuclear safety projects.

The region's governor Yury Yevdokimov and his counterpart from the Norwegian province of Finnmark Gunnar Kjonnoy signed on Thursday a number of agreements on financing projects of ecological rehabilitation of polluted territories in the region, the regional administration's press service told RIA Novosti.

The bulk of this sum - 14 million crones - will be allocated to rehabilitate the largest storage facility of nuclear waste and fuel of the Northern fleet, situated in Andreeva Guba. The money will be spent for building there a so-called Norwegian village - residential blocks with all necessary engineering networks, where specialists working on rehabilitating the storage facility will live.

1.5 million crones will be allocated for financing the project of utilizing radioisotope thermoelectrical generators used as power sources in lighthouses situated in the peninsula's areas that are difficult to access.
