In 2014, the creation of a new cluster type shower array NEVOD-EAS was started around the Cherenkov Water Detector NEVOD and coordinate detector DECOR. The shower array will allow to determine the size, axis position and arrival direction of EAS registered by these detectors. In 2015–2016, the NEVOD-EAS central part, including 4 clusters of scintillation detector stations located on an area of about 104 m2, was deployed and started operation. This article presents the description of the NEVOD-EAS arrangement, detecting elements and data acquisition system, as well as the first results on EAS detection.
