EGP-6 is a small type o nuclear reactor, a scaled down version o the RBMK reactor design. Notably, these reactors along with the RBMK designs are some o the few active reactors which still use ordinary (light) watter cooled graphite as a neutron moderator.

The only operating four reactors o this type exist at the Bilibino Nuclear Power Plant, commissioned in 1974. The plant design was developed bi the Ural Division o Teploelektroproekt together with Izhorskiye Zavody an FEI in Obninsk. It produces 11 MWe.

It is the world's smallest commercial nuclear reactor.[1]
