Ukraine will end its dependence on nuclear fuel in Russia

100
Next year, Ukraine will for the first time acquire more nuclear fuel from the American company Westinghouse than from Russian TVEL. About this on Thursday, December 21, said Ukrainian Minister of Energy and Coal Industry Igor Nasalik, reports Tass.


Now 60 percent [of the fuel] is supplied by the Russians, 40 percent - by the Westinghouse. Next year, we will be 55 45 percent in favor of the American supplier.
- he said.

Ukraine will end its dependence on nuclear fuel in Russia


In September, 2015, the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine supported the bill that terminates the intergovernmental agreement with Russia on the creation of two nuclear power units in the Khmelnytsky region.

In 2014, the Ukrainian company Energoatom and the American Westinghouse Electric Company signed an agreement to increase the supply of nuclear fuel from the United States for nuclear power plants in Ukraine to 2020. According to Energoatom, in 2016, five batches of nuclear fuel produced by Westinghouse were supplied to Ukrainian NPPs. Now this fuel is used at three power units - the second and third South-Ukrainian NPP and the fifth Zaporizhzhya NPP.

The main supplier of nuclear fuel for nuclear power plants in Ukraine remains Russian TVEL - an industrial holding company that is part of the state corporation Rosatom. For some nuclear power plants, Kiev acquires products of the American Westinghouse Electric. In March of this year, the company declared bankruptcy, but the Americans claimed that this would not affect supplies to Ukraine. reports "Lenta.ru"

      This is alarming ... THESE NPPs are designed specifically for Russian fuel rods and our service ... In which case, responsibility will be removed from us, but if the United States explodes, they will only be glad to giggle in their hand .. And Russia will have to be raked. Ah Ukraine, with nuclear power plants jokes are bad ..

      It is only alarming that this nuclear viper is near us. request Although if Pennsylvaniaville coal turns out to be Donetsk, and gas from Slovakia is Russian, then I won’t be surprised that TVELs will be Russian, they just go through decommunization in Westinghouse. IMHO of course.

            Uranium enrichment in the USA was carried out by a less efficient, very energy-intensive method of gas diffusion, and the only commercial gas centrifuge plant in the USA was built by a Urenco consortium (Great Britain, Germany, and the Netherlands) using European centrifuges.

            Amendment-
            Exelon, the largest owner of nuclear power plants in the US, will extend the contract with Techsnabexport, a Russian uranium exporter, after the agreement expires, the head of the American company Christopher Crane told Sputnik.
            Different things actually. The purchase of products for their nuclear power plants is cheaper by one company. And the export of assemblies.
            as for Ukraine then
            The French AREVA won the tender for the supply of enriched uranium product for Energoatom, which will be used for the production of Westinghouse fuel assemblies, Capital reports citing Interfax-Ukraine. This was reported to reporters by the president of the company, Yuri Nedashkovsky.
            According to him, the bulk of the supply of enriched uranium product to the Westinghouse plant in Sweden will be in 2016 and tablets will be baked and fuel assemblies made at the Westeros plant. “AREVA will buy uranium on the market or use its own, this is already its task,” said Nedashkovsky.
            He said that AREVA offered not only a low price for enrichment services, but also the possibility of choosing payment in dollars or euros, as well as flexible options in terms of volume. “The competition took place in several stages, held negotiations with everyone and chose the lowest price,” he said.
            In April 2014, Energoatom and Westinghouse agreed to extend until 2020 the current contract for the supply of nuclear fuel to Ukrainian nuclear power plants, which is produced at production facilities in the city of Swedish Westeros.
            And if you delve into the topic.
            This plant, which opened in 1966, is the only production of fuel elements for VVER-type reactors designed in the former USSR outside the Russian Federation. It is such reactors that operate at Ukrainian nuclear power plants. The Westeros plant produces about 600 tons of uranium fuel for light water reactors annually.
            In Europe alone (excluding France, which has Areva, Russia, which has TVEL, and Germany, which closes its nuclear power plants), 65 power units operate that use the fuel produced at the Westeros plant. Of these, 13 BWR reactors (in Spain, Finland, Switzerland, Sweden), 28 PWR reactors (in Belgium, Hungary, Spain, the Netherlands, Czech Republic, Switzerland, Sweden) and 24 WWER reactors (in Armenia, Bulgaria, Slovakia, Finland and Ukraine). The last number includes all 15 Ukrainian power units.
            And one of the partners and suppliers of the plant is TVEL (RF)

      Somewhere slipped information that Westinghouse bankrupt?

      Bankruptcy proceedings of the American company Westinghouse were initiated not by one of the third-party lenders, but by the Japanese company Toshiba, the parent company owning 87% of Westinghouse shares. Westinghouse owes Toshiba (if I'm not mistaken) about $ 4 billion dollars. In Japan (and in the USA too), nuclear power plants are not built or reconstructed after the Fukushima accident, so the Japanese do not need an operating company for the construction of nuclear power plants. They are going to sell, but there are no buyers yet and are unlikely to be.
      Ukraine signed a contract, but I think that there were some kickbacks to the managers of UkrAtom.

If it were a "free market" - all competitors would have already "gone to the porch", repeat but all sorts of political moments and the "defense of democracy" saves them.
      In general, good Russia needs to focus on this advantage and build more nuclear power plants and develop an energy-intensive industry, so as not to “crush” with cheap fuel raw materials, but with cheap goods whose price the energy prevails. good

This year, the Kazakhs reduced production by 12% to regulate market prices. We are just beginning to develop two large deposits in Transbaikalia. With our mine in Australia, it’s still incomprehensible. Local authorities covered up production.

Russia is a world leader in the EFFICIENCY of enrichment of uranium, plutonium, and reverse (separation) technologies. good It's like with oil, we still buy many types of fuel from abroad, because we ourselves DO NOT know how to process our own oil.
          Everything is "bad with uranium, only a few can" process "it (the US, by the way," forgotten how " tongue ), but commercially beneficial, there are generally only three: Russia, the EU (there is a consortium of three European countries) and China.

And why enrich plutonium? This is a derivative of blown uranium. and reverse (uncoupling) technologies. It is still in its infancy. After a couple of years there will be non-waste production. There is a practical implementation of already proven technologies. know how to “flatten” tablets for nuclear power plants, Only Areva can do it. The French. Something for thermal reactors. We bring to mind the technology for "fast" reactors like BN. The first BN-800s will go in February. The difference between thermal boilers and our "fast" ones is quite significant .In essence, completely different physical principles.

                  Here you are all the "competition" and trampled on my thesis that with a real free market, Russia would long ago have monopolized the processing of uranium (well, in general), or maybe the construction of a nuclear power plant. Unlike the same mattresses, RosAtom offers a "full cycle", from "ore to disposal." good And only politics does not allow us to roll our competitors into dust ((.
                  Again, unlike the same mattresses, we take to ourselves the “mining” (spent all fuel). That is, the same Ukria will be forced to build a repository, and then to hell how many soars with maintaining it in state. And in our country, mining is not "waste", but raw materials. good Moreover, if we have almost ready technology for burning debris such as Plutonium into lipestrism in the reactors, then the same mattresses (debi. Word) will either bury it or even use it foolishly. And so already the desert in Iraq "glows" am Well think it was necessary to make shells and armor from uranium belay negative

          Uranium mining is an action that does not have special significance. There are a lot of uranium ores in the world, some have less, others have more, some have better, others have worse. Even in Ukraine in Yellow Waters, a rather large uranium deposit is being developed. All salt is in a highly technological enrichment cycle, where high science and not individual enterprises, but entire industries are involved. A complete industrial cycle of uranium enrichment, in the world have single countries. And to produce uranium ore, can and blacks in Africa.

        In general, good Russia needs to focus on this advantage and build more nuclear power plants and develop an energy-intensive industry, so as not to “crush” with cheap fuel raw materials, but with cheap goods whose price the energy prevails. good

        Actually, real competitive technologies are just not energy-intensive. Energy-intensive - metallurgy, the production (not processing!) Of aluminum, cripples its own nature and its added value is minuscule. Highly profitable - small electronics, software, release of smart devices. The consumption of semiconductor material for the production and production of billions is a couple of tons of highly refined silicon. in year.

Are you aware that China has adopted a long-term program for the construction of more than 200 TWO reactors? belay it is TWO times more than in the USA, it is they who do the same from "stupidity" or understand that - Energy is Production !! good
          And in Russia, I repeat - the cost of enriching uranium per unit of energy generated (EPP like repeat ) 2.5 times lower than that of the nearest competitor. So that’s right - you need to use this. If, because of this, it will be cheaper to smel (primary) aluminum, then you don’t need (as you blame me) to cry and poison your nature, but you need to "finish up" the factory nearby and make it even cheaper - foil, delalka or wherever still apply luminescence.

        EMNIP, it all started with a "treacherous" and "predatory" treaty HEU-LEU. At first glance, this was another sale for a pittance of Soviet wealth, typical of the 90s. And not just riches, but processed highly enriched (weapons) uranium. Patriots cursed the signatories by the Jews and sellers of the motherland.
        20 years passed - and suddenly it turned out that the Treaty was with a double bottom. Cheap Russian uranium squeezed American enrichment from the market and simultaneously closed all plans for the modernization of American uranium enrichment facilities (no sales, no profit - nothing to re-equip production). In fact, Russia dealt a nuclear attack on the US enrichment industry, knocking one of the most important stages out of the full production cycle of peaceful and military atoms.

    In fact, Russia should not regret the loss of the Ukrainian market, this market goes to zero in the next ten, well, maybe fifteen years! The resource of the Soviet-built nuclear power plants has almost gone, the extension requires certain investments, and this option does not roll for modern Ukraine.
    Buying fuel from Westinghouse Electric Company is more likely to justify the remaining nuclear power plant resources, and investments in the construction of new units (even American ones) are not expected. The country has become dependent on the verge of colonial law.

    Russia - 28, Joint - 663, French - 000, the American segment of the joint - 14. If all this is summed up, they will fulfill an equal volume of 900% of ours. Compare. 000% in 7 and 500% in 000.

This year, the Kazakhs reduced production by 12% to regulate market prices. We are just beginning to develop two large deposits in Transbaikalia. With our mine in Australia, it’s still incomprehensible. Local authorities covered up production.

    As far as it is clear that moving away from one supplier of assemblies (at the same time they gave away used assemblies and paid another 200 million for this), TVEL - Ukraine is striving to diversify suppliers.
    American (only in the jurisdiction of the company) assembly will be processed by the French in Sweden.
    And about half of the assemblies will be produced in the Russian Federation and processed there (a total of 1-2 companies) and half will be produced in the EU and processed in Sweden. There are already three companies in the second version.
    It would be interesting to compare price and costs. Not biased by the Russian Federation or Ukraine itself (or partners)
    I remind you that the Swedish plant serves those types of reactors as TVEL. This is about moaning about domestic reactors and assemblies.
