“Now is not the easiest period in relations between our countries, but we have not disrupted nuclear fuel supplies once and now all Ukrainian nuclear plants are still provided with Russian-produced fuel,” Kiriyenko said.
“A contract has been concluded for all supplies in 2015.”
Kiriyenko also said that Ukrainian companies also fully meet their contract obligations.“The Ukrainian partners have not missed payments, they pay on time, while we ensure supplies in full,” he said.
Rosatom’s 10-year order portfolio will amount to US $98 billion by the end of 2014, CEO Kiriyenko said.
At present, the company’s foreign order portfolio comprises 27 power units, excluding projects in Latin America, Europe, and South Africa, which are at the stage of negotiations, Kiriyenko said.
Ukraine imports about $600 million worth of nuclear fuel from Russia on the average annually, which is comparable with the indicators reported in first half of 2014 (279 million tonnes).
They are operated by the state-run company Energoatom.
The Zaporizhye nuclear plant with an installed generating capacity of 6,000 megawatt is the biggest energy facility in Ukraine and Europe. It generates about 50% of electricity produced by Ukraine’s nuclear plants and accounts for more than 22% of the aggregate electricity generation in the country.
