MOSCOW, February 23 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia’s nuclear fuel manufacturer TVEL, affiliated with the state corporation Rosatom, has signed a contract with Vattenfall Nuclear Fuel AB, of Sweden, for the supply of a test batch of fuel for the Ringhals-3 NPP.
For the first time ever nuclear fuel developed by Rosatom’s specialists will be loaded into a PWR western nuclear reactor.
As Itar-Tass has learned from Rosatom, the contract provides for the production of fuel at a plant in Novosibirsk and the supply of four or eight experimental fuel assemblies to the Swedish operator.
Rosatom says the successful implementation of this project will let the Russian manufacturer access a new, vaster market of reactors of western design and to expand Russia’s presence on the markets of nuclear fuel.
TVEL incorporates industrial and research assets for fuel manufacturing, the separation-sublimation complex, and also enterprises manufacturing gas centrifuges and equipment for them.
The Ringhals NPP is Sweden’s largest nuclear power plants, located on Varo Peninsula, 60 kilometers away from Goteborg.
