MOSCOW, March 05. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s fuel company TVEL, belonging to the nuclear corporation Rosatom, will fulfill all of its obligations regarding nuclear fuel supplies to foreign nuclear power plants despite delivery problems in Ukraine, the corporation said on Wednesday, March 5.
“Despite the ban on the movement of trains with nuclear fuel cycle products in Ukraine, which was issued by the State Committee on Nuclear Regulation of Ukraine on January 28, 2014, Rosatom’s fuel company TVEL will fulfill all of its obligations to deliver nuclear fuel for foreign nuclear power plants,” it said.
TVEL plans to use aircraft for this purpose and intends to start delivering nuclear fuel to Slovakia by plane already next week.
“We continue to work with our foreign partners as usual and they understand the reason for changing the route,” a Rosatom official said, adding that the events in Ukraine would not affect nuclear fuel supplies to Bulgaria’s Kozloduy or removal of spent fuel.
