Research Nuclear Reactor WWR with power 2 MW of the Institute put into operation in 10 September 1959. In 1980 year, after reconstruction its power (WWR-SM) had been increased up to 10 MW.

Reactor is used for carrying out researches on nuclear physics, radiation physics, radiation material science, activation analysis, irradiation of minerals, also for radionuclide production.
In 2008 y. It will be planned to convert WWR-SM reactor for using fuel IRT-4M (ИРТ-4М) (19,7% with enrichment -U-235).
This project is co-funded by the European Union
