VLADIVOSTOK, September 4. /TASS/. Russian state nuclear corporation Rosatom has removed all spent fuel from decommissioned nuclear-powered submarines from the Primorye Territory and the Kamchatka Territory of Russia's Far East, head of the corporation Sergey Kiriyenko told the Eastern Economic Forum on Friday.
"A big program in the Russian Far East was related to utilisation of nuclear-powered submarines, which used to be in the Navy," he said adding the corporation had received the submarines from the Defense Ministry. "As of today, from the 201 submarines across the country, 198 have been utilised, and all the fuel has been removed from the region. In the Far East, we worked on 75 submarines."
"Last year, we removed 21 special trains of used nuclear fuel from the Far East, and today the Primorye Territory and Kamchatka are free from the used nuclear fuel from nuclear-powered submarines," he said.
