As that unit was being built, the Soviet government vetted designs for two even larger FBRs: BN-800 and BN-1600.
The program focused mostly on light-water reactors, but it also called for the commercialization of FBRs, outlining the construction of a few BN-800 reactors and design of a commercial prototype of the BN-1600.
Construction of the BN-800 and plans for a larger BN-1600, began in 1984, with startup of the BN-800 then planned for 1992.
