Ukraine plans to expand fuel deliveries from Westinghouse
1/3 of fuel for Ukrainian nuclear power plants is expected to be supplied from the company
As part of the diversification of suppliers program, Ukraine expects to cover one third of its needs by buying fuel from U.S-based producer for 2016.
It was reported during the briefing by Minister of Energy and Coal Industry of Ukraine Volodymyr Demchyshyn, states UNIAN. "I hope that in 2016, 5 of 13 major supplies will come from Westinghouse. I think it will be a significant step to diversify the suppliers," he said.
This year almost all the fuel required was supplied from Russia.
In the framework of diversification and security of nuclear supplies for Ukraine’s reactor fleet, cooperation between Westinghouse Electric Company and the National Nuclear Energy Generating Company (NNEGC Energoatom) was developed since 2000.
Westinghouse Electric Company is the world's pioneering nuclear energy company and is a leading supplier of nuclear plant products and technologies to utilities throughout the world. Westinghouse supplied the world's first pressurized water reactor in 1957 in Shippingport, Pa., U.S. Today, Westinghouse technology is the basis for approximately one-half of the world's operating nuclear plants, including more than 50 percent of those in Europe.
