Westinghouse Electric Company is the main competitor of Russian Rosatom in supply of nuclear fuel for Ukrainian power plants. Earlier, Volodymyr Demchyshyn, Minister of Energy and Coal, said that Ukraine plans to significantly increase supply of nuclear fuel from Westinghouse in 2016.
Due to problems encountered with the Westinghouse’s fuel, several Ukrainian NPPs temporary suspended their work. Serious consequences of this incident had not. "Fuel assemblies produced by Westinghouse have repeatedly demonstrated nonconformance to the quality of fuel needed for pressurized water reactors of Soviet production. Attempts to use on the Temelin nuclear power plant in Czech Republic led to a rather serious incident", stated Russian Foreign.
Russia believes that Ukraine decided to abandon the supply of Rosatom’s nuclear fuel because of "purely political reasons".
