MOSCOW, March 15 (Itar-Tass) – Russian company Rusatom Overseas, which the State Atomic Energy Corporation Rosatom set up for promoting Russian nuclear technologies on the global market, has obtained membership of professional nuclear power associations in Brazil and the South African Republic, Rosatom said in a press release.
“We consider Rusatom’s membership of the Nuclear Industry Association of South Africa /NIASA/ as an important event that will facilitate the promotion of Rosatom’s business on the promising South African market of nuclear power,” Rusatom Overseas president Alexei Kalinin said.
“We’re going to expand our collaboration with the South African nuclear industry both in what concerns the expansive program of building nuclear power plants in that country and the engaging of the impressive potential of South African companies in Rosatom’s global projects that envisions the construction of nuclear plants,” he said.
As he commented on Rusatom Overseas membership in the Brazilian association for the development of nuclear power projects /ABDAN/, Kalinin said the company and the association have coordinated a plan for collaboration in a host of areas.
“The Russian nuclear power industry has unique capabilities to make integrated proposals to its partners,” he said. “These proposals are based on the utilization of well-tested, economically efficient and safe technologies.”
“We’ve noted the Brazilian partners’ interest towards cooperation in the nuclear sphere, and ABDAN membership will enable us to do it with maximum efficiency,” Kalinin said.
“Our objective is somewhat bigger than the promotion of Russian technologies – we’re also expected to build mutually beneficial cooperation with foreign partners and to implement joint projects worldwide,” he said.
“I’m sure joint efforts of nuclear industry professionals from many countries will open up the opportunities for us to offer new technological solutions, which will contribute to the development of nuclear power engineering as a safe and efficacious source of energy,” Kalinin said.
The South African authorities set up NIASA in 2007 to promote high standards in the field of nuclear technologies in South Africa. It extends membership to companies, groups and private individuals working for the nuclear industry and other branches of the economy and having interest in the development of nuclear power engineering.
NIASA pools together the efforts of its members in the mapping out of commonly shared policies and maintaining coordination with governmental agencies.
ABDAN was set up in Rio de Janeiro October 27, 1987. It is a non-profit organization uniting the majority of strategically important enterprises engaged in the efforts to implement the national nuclear program.
The association facilitates the development and assimilation of commercial nuclear technologies in the country and stimulates exchange of research data and scientific information among its members.
