The predictive analysis of the effect of the negative factors on the lifetime of the irreplaceable BN-600 reactor components (reactor vessel, irreplaceable in-vessel components) has been fulfilled. The results of the completed work have shown that the serviceability of the vessel and irreplaceable in-vessel components of the BN-600 reactor for 45 years of operation is ensured.
