Westinghouse Electric Sweden will supply six batches of nuclear fuel to National Nuclear Generating Company Energoatom for Ukrainian nuclear power plants (NPP) in 2017, Interim Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and President of Westinghouse Electric Company Jose Emeterio Gutierrez has said.
“In 2017, Westinghouse will first supply six batches of fuel to Ukraine. It is planned that six batches will be shipped every year until 2020. At least this is outlined in the contract,” he said in an interview with Interfax-Ukraine.
Gutierrez recalled that Westinghouse expanded the nuclear fuel production capacity of its plant in Sweden for reactors of VVER type, which allowed Ukraine to expand diversification of supplies.
