Russians consider Slovakia as site for nuclear fuel plant
3 Mar 2009 Flash News
Russian state corporation Tvel, one of the world's largest producers of nuclear fuel, is interested in building a nuclear fuel production plant in Slovakia, reports the Hospodárske Noviny (HN)economic daily on March 3. The plant would be involved in producing uranium-based fuel cells for nuclear power stations, according information supplied by the company's communication department to HN.
Apart from this Russian company, only French state energy concern Electricité de France produces nuclear fuel cores in Europe. Several meetings dedicated to nuclear energy were recently held at the level of the company representatives and the Economy Ministry.
Tvel currently supplies nuclear fuel to Slovakia's Slovenské Elektrarne, as well as to the Czech ČEZ, to Ukraine, the Baltic countries, Finland and China. Tvel is currently deciding between Ukraine and Slovakia as the site for the facility. Hospodárske Noviny, SITA
