Ukraine is going to buy nuclear fuel from five minutes to the bankrupt Westinghouse before 2025

28
The Ukrainian state-owned enterprise Energoatom publishes a statement that Ukraine refuses to purchase Russian fuel assemblies for seven nuclear power units (from 15) and switches to providing reactors with nuclear fuel from the United States. We are talking about fuel assemblies manufactured by Westinghouse.


From the message of the Ukrainian "Energoatom":
Today, Westinghouse Electric announced the conclusion of an agreement on the extension of the contract with the State Enterprise “National Atomic Energy Generating Company“ Energoatom ”on the supply of nuclear fuel. This agreement provides for the supply of nuclear fuel to provide seven of the 15 Ukrainian nuclear power units during 2021-2025, which means the extension and continuation of the current contract for six power units, which expires in 2020 year.


It is reported that Ukraine in 2017 has reduced the volume of supplies of nuclear fuel from Russia to 49%.

Ukraine is going to buy nuclear fuel from five minutes to the bankrupt Westinghouse before 2025


At the same time, Energoatom does not share all the details on the “diversification” of supplies with Ukrainian citizens. Firstly, it should be noted that the American company, until recently, supplied Ukraine with fuel, which was produced at a plant in Sweden. Secondly, Westinghouse today goes through a bankruptcy procedure. The company filed for bankruptcy in March 2017 of the year after reports of its inability to service gigantic debts in the amount of almost 10 billion dollars.

In this regard, the Ukrainian "Energoatom" itself reports that it is actually going on a frank adventure - it concludes contracts with a company whose bankruptcy can be recognized at any time. The money may be deposited into the accounts of the American "partner" in the near future, but who will put nuclear fuel to Ukraine if this partner is declared bankrupt is an open question.

      I won’t be surprised if the Westinghouse is bought by the Chinese or Indians. And non-native inserts for reactors as counterfeit spare parts - only other consequences

        hi
        Exactly. You won’t get enough with hardened legs. The Americans seriously took up Waltzman and his “boys”, and here whoever holds the dancer for “Faberge” sets the rhythm of the dance.

        already. The agreement was signed about our (RF) assemblies in their (USA) reactors. It will be the same as with coal.

        Do not buy. These are not seeds.

        Nope, they don’t look like blacks or Arabs, so they’ll just close the cordons. And all this plague will rush to us. And they will be allowed. Hundreds of thousands of people who hate Russia and those who live there. And in the explosion of the reactor, if this happens it will be clear who is to blame.

      No, of course, "Westinhouse" or what it will then be called and put on. This is not just an economic supply, but specifically a political supply.

        Here it is Ukrainian logic in the examples. The most interesting is that no one is surprised at this stupidity.

    All the same, it’s time for us and Europe to join forces in the forced closure of nuclear power plants in Ukraine. Nobody needs a monkey with a nuclear grenade at the borders. No one can predict what a "genius" with a Seljuk formation is capable of, but it is better to remove an atom from his masturbation claim. Let the on-door speakerphones on Navozets stick with a band-aid and their gypsy wing Leo is taught to fly, and to shut down the nuclear power plant, to take out the fuel

    Everything is clear with politicians, but what is it like for operators to endure all this disgrace, to put their own and others' lives in mortal danger.

      There it’s not a bribe, but rather a whip and a lyuli, from across the ocean they said not to buy from Russia, buy ours and everyone was sintering “non-stop”. It’s not “aggressor” that’s not spoiling, here freedom and democracy are there - the answer will arrive immediately

        Bo, sho change from that?

    The horror is not that someone will really make a dough on this deal, but about the problems that already existed and can be with the counterfeit (in fact) Westinghouse fuel assemblies ...

    If the main criterion for the transaction is the size of the rollback, then they put the prospect of risks and warranty obligations. The main and "iron" excuse for Svidomo that is not at the trough - the main thing that we will not buy in Russia.

    There is a nuance here
    Westinghouse Electric, a subsidiary of the Japanese Toshiba Corporation, filed a bankruptcy lawsuit in New York last March ... Westinghouse Electric, a nuclear power company, reached an agreement on its sale to the Brookfield Business Partners investment fund.
    The deal will amount to $ 4,6 billion, the Wall Street Journal reported on Thursday in its electronic version.

    The Ukrainian nuclear power plants have a penny left, and here they decided to buy non-standard fuel from their own dope, well? The resource will end faster and in 2025 it will be possible not to buy fuel at all, there will be nowhere!

    What is “tastier” is what they buy! And the "scraps", with all the problems, will be left to their descendants to decide. Although, the latter, silently, is not welcomed by the international community.
