KIEV, November 25. /TASS/. Ukrainian nuclear firm Energoatom confirmed on Tuesday that it had signed a nuclear fuel supply contract with Russian nuclear fuel producer TVEL, a unit of nuclear power corporation Rosatom.
“This supplemental agreement will allow ensuring operations of (nuclear) plants until 2016,” Danko Biley, Energoatom’s director for safety, said.
Rosatom’s CEO Sergey Kiriyenko recently said that Rosatom signed a contract to supply nuclear fuel to Ukraine’s nuclear power plants in 2015.
“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 them.
He also said that Ukrainian companies also fully meet their contract obligations.
Ukraine continues searching for other sources of nuclear fuel supplies, Biley said. “We are searching for an alternative source of supplies. At present, we are developing a contract with the US Westinghouse and plan first fuel load next year for the third unit of the Yuzhno-Ukrainskaya nuclear plant,” he said.
