Westinghouse gets the right to a new experiment on Ukrainian energy

85
It became known how the Swedish-American company Westinghouse is trying to make money on the project for the next experiment with Ukrainian energy. So, it became known that Westinghouse Electric Sweden AB, as well as the Polish Polenergia International, received the right to transfer Ukrainian energy networks to the “European market”. At the same time, companies do not hide the fact that they are solving the problem of separating the Ukrainian energy system from the energy system of the CIS countries, primarily from Russia, with an attempt to capitalize on it.




For the "European integration" of the Ukrainian energy system, a consortium is being created, which in addition to these companies will include EDF Trading Limited (France). This is reported by the Polish media. The name of the project is ambitious: “Power Bridge” (“Energy Bridge”).

From the report:

These companies should lead the project, which should pull Ukraine out of the energy embrace of Russia and include it in the EU energy system.

At the first stage, one of the units of the Khmelnitsky NPP will be redirected to generate electricity exclusively abroad: Slovakia, Hungary, Romania and Moldova. The second will serve Ukrainian consumers only partially. The lion's share of the generated electricity will be sent to the Polish energy system.

It should be noted here that this process, in fact, is already underway. Generating capacities in the West of Ukraine already work mainly in the European direction. One of the reasons is a decrease in electricity demand in the Ukrainian industry sector. In turn, this suggests that this sector continues to follow the path of dismantling.

The second stage of the “separation of the Ukrainian system from Russia” will be carried out by the aforementioned Westinghouse company. According to reports in Ukraine and Poland, it will be engaged in the “modernization” of Ukrainian nuclear power plants. In fact, we are talking about new experiments on the conversion of Ukrainian NPP reactors to Swedish-American fuel. The same fuel that the company wanted to transfer stations to other countries to, but was refused due to unresolved security problems. Ukraine is ready to continue the most dangerous experiment on itself.



And finally, the third stage. It is no less interesting than the two previous ones. It consists in the fact that the French trading company named above will sell electricity generated in Ukraine to European consumers. It can be assumed that the lion's share of the profit will be received not by Ukrainian energy companies, but by European dealers. But for the Ukrainian authorities, the main thing is that they "tear themselves away from Russia." Peremoga ...

    Yeah ... they’ll not be brought to good - these experiments! Although ... Westinghouse can be understood, who else can be chosen as laboratory experimental ... but, where are the Shchenevmerliks ​​and why? This energy bridge - can lead to a real collapse of the Ukrainian energy system ... well, and if the fuel is different, the result is like tossing a coin.

        I remember well in 1986, I remember the children of Chernobyl who were brought to the Pioneer camp Sputnik in which I was resting. I also remember the father of my school friend - who was among the liquidators, I remember the school graduation ... to which he could hardly come, and soon died.
        I really hope that such tragedies will never happen again !!!
        In Tyumen, there is a monument to the liquidators of the Chernobyl accident, located in the square of COURAGE, a beautiful place, I often go there with the Son.

          Ukraine is ready to continue the most dangerous experiment on itself.

          They don’t really ask anyone there, everyone will customize for their products, Europe will receive cheaper electricity, will also receive nuclear repositories on the side, etc.
          Only if God forbid there will be bang, will everyone get it, including the same eastern europe

        Understanding and lobbying are two different things. I don’t think that fascists marching along the streets of Kiev are also the norm, but so far marching with torches. The whole question is whether there is enough gunpowder for the rest of the population of Ukraine to stop all this or whether everything will move further towards the Stone Age.

          Something seems to me that is not enough. There will be a conflict of "fathers and children" on the face, plus the support of the Natsik from the state.
          The Nazis do not think with their heads, they think with slogans. And attempts at a reasonable argument are "everything from the evil one," from their point of view.
          Well, of course, this is a sweet "witch hunt" - ie. on those who do not want to massively in the "coffin".
          They probably do not want to either, but consider themselves immortal.

        .this, however, is a question, especially when you consider that
        In March 2017, Westinghouse Electric Company filed withbankruptcy petition. At the end of 2016, the company had liabilitiesand $ 9,8 billion and the inability to fulfill them due to the lack of contracts

        Those who need to understand understand everything, but it is not they who make the decision. As one atomic scientist explained to me, Westinghouse fuel is like A-98 gasoline poured into Moskvich 412. It works fine, but only the valves and rings burn out quickly. And there, and not far to the release.

      In such topics, here is a commentator from Ukraine under the nickname Antares, probably does not go, so as not to injure his psyche. For any more or less adequate sane person understands that nuclear power plants are not household appliances with a universal connector for any world manufacturer. Forgive me, the technologies of even the late USSR and the early Russian Federation, which helped Ukraine, which was already independent, to build nuclear power units in Western Ukraine, differ from American nuclear energy and French. Otherwise, the other countries of Eastern Europe that have Soviet-Russian nuclear power plants, even despite membership in NATO, would not have kindly refused the services of this Amer’s company)
      Maybe Antares lives far from the Khmelnitsky nuclear power plant? And for one and from other Ukrainian nuclear power plants?))

    In fact, we are talking about new experiments on the conversion of Ukrainian NPP reactors to Swedish-American fuel. The same fuel that the company wanted to transfer stations to other countries to, but was refused due to unresolved safety problems. Ukraine is ready to continue the most dangerous experiment on itself.
    Well, what can I say, "Master master, the flag is in your hands. But to be honest, a little" goose bumps "have gone on the skin.

    The main ambush is that Westinghouse never takes the spent fuel back, but dumps it in the country that purchases the fuel. Rosatom always takes and processes.
    Westinghouse's experiments mean that we will have radioactive lying nearby, it is unclear that in obscure conditions and without any kind of control.
    Westinghouse has already been noted in Fukushima, and this is not counting the fact that he is bankrupt. Half-eastern Europe will be dirtied and presented with empty pockets turned upside down and who will clean up the garbage after them?

    The author does not know that Westinghouse has been on the Ukrainian market since 2008. And 6 power units have been working for a long time on its fuel assemblies! All boron cheese is for one reason only, at the moment TVEL has 60% of the fuel market for Westinghouse 40 nuclear power plants. But the trend is clearly observed Westinghouse is slowly pushing TVEL out of the Ukrainian market. And this is a loss of profit.
    Such a situation would not have happened if TVEL had agreed to build an assembly plant in Ukraine. However, negotiations for almost 12 years have not yielded results. Therefore, Westinghouse was able to gain a foothold in this market.

    Well, seriously, Wiki writes that Westinghouse Electric is very serious and solid.

    "Westinghouse Electric Corp.'s work on nuclear energy began in the mid-1930s. In 1937, the company built a Westinghouse Atom Smasher in Forest Hills, Pennsylvania, which was used for scientific research until 1958) After World War II, Westinghouse Electric Corp. continued to invest in nuclear power and in 1957 built the first US civilian nuclear power plant in Shippingport, a suburb of Pittsburgh. "

    "Currently, the American company" Westinghouse Electric Company LLC "(registered in Delaware) is engaged in the design of nuclear reactors, as well as the design and supervision of the construction of nuclear power units. It, in particular, is the owner of the technology for the production of nuclear reactors with water pressure and boiling point reactors (reactor designs: AR600 - certified by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission in 1999, AP1000 - expected to be completed in 2004, the concept of the next decade - ISIR). According to experts from the Westinghouse Electric Company, almost 50% of all commercial power units in the world and about 60% in the USA are built using the company's technology.

    In addition, Westinghouse Electric Company is one of the world leaders in the production of fuel for nuclear power plants - fuel elements (TVELs). Westinghouse's four fuel plants in South Carolina, Springfield (England), Westros (Sweden) and Kumatori (Japan) provide 147 nuclear power reactors, accounting for 31% of the global market. Currently, about 75% of the world nuclear fuel market (with an annual turnover of over 35 billion US dollars) is divided between three companies: the US-Japanese Westinghouse (31%), the French Areva (27%) and the Russian TVEL. , part of the state corporation Rosatom (17%).

    But the main thing for the Ukrainian authorities is that they are "torn away from Russia."

    That's how it is, but here is a classic - in spite of my mother frostbitten ears!
    the presidential representative in the Cabinet of Ministers Andrei Gerus appealed to the government with a request to stop the implementation of the project, stating that it is not an integration into the European energy system, but "a one-way line." Conclusion of the KhNPP Unit 2, in his opinion, will lead to a shortage of electricity in the domestic market and an increase in the cost of energy on it.

    Are you dock This year, 3 countries launched 4 new nuclear reactors, follows from the IAEA data published on August 19 on the page of the PRIS database on the Internet.

    The PRIS (Information System for Nuclear Reactors) database has been maintained by the International Atomic Energy Agency for over 50 years. It provides information on the availability and condition of nuclear power plants worldwide. On August 19, the information on the page was updated.

    Over the past period of 2019, new nuclear reactors were commissioned by China (2 pcs), Russia (1 pc) and South Korea (1 pc). And Russia during this period was the only country that launched the construction of a new reactor. In addition, 4 reactors in the world were shut down: in the USA, in Russia, in China and in Japan.

    Currently, 450 nuclear reactors are operating in the world, generating a total of nearly 400 GW of electrical energy. Another 52 reactors are under construction.

    Most of all in the world of reactors in the USA - 97 pieces. France has 58. In third place is China, which has 48 reactors. Japan has 37, Russia has 36 nuclear reactors.

    Recall yesterday it became known that in Russia about 2020 billion rubles were allocated to finance the comprehensive program "Atomic Science, Engineering and Technology" from 2025 to 89. The funds will go towards the creation and development of nuclear technology. You should learn to start. Well there is a comprehensive analysis. Or at least start with the years in which nuclear power plants were built in the USA.

    I'm not saying that the share of nuclear power plants in the energy sector of different countries is different.

    And there are different types of reactors. From the fact that in the USA they built reactors half a century ago, and today they don’t know where to get fuel for them, there are no less problems.

    Yes, all the stations are Soviet and all the projects are Soviet, but, of course, then all the projects went under Russia. Why? Because, when the station is being designed, then in the future all the agreements are carried out with the designer.

    For example, Tien-en-Min in China is the Russian unit, but the Contract already states that the maintenance of certain systems is carried out by Russia, if the Chinese Atomic Energy Corporation wants to carry out modernization on this unit, it must coordinate this modernization with the Designer, and the designer is Russia. This is a world practice, not the desire of Russia. Fuel is a very complex system, in which the federal service, internal troops, railway transport, specialists in other fields are involved ... Is there an agreement between Ukraine and Westinghausen that spent fuel is supplied to the country in which it was produced? I have not seen such an agreement. Between Ukraine and Russia there is such an agreement. All fuel that Russia supplied to Ukraine is subject to return and reprocessing in Russia. That is, the leadership of Ukraine does not think about tomorrow ... Terrible thing.

    Eliseo Bartolazi, anthropologist at the University of Milano-Bicocca, a researcher at the Institute of Higher Geopolitical Research and Related Sciences (IsAG), a correspondent for the newspaper Geopolitics

    Ukraine has already made a lot of mistakes without coordinating a lot with the Designer, this is definitely bad. First of all, this concerns experiments using American fuel. Since Russia created the block, it is obliged to supply fuel for this installation. This fuel is designed specifically for this block model. At the South-Ukrainian station, Ukraine began to receive fuel from the American company Westinghausen, first they took 10 assemblies, then 68 fuel assemblies. The first 10 assemblies did not fit, modernized, and delivered again. Now at the second unit of the South-Ukrainian NPP there are 68 fuel assemblies of Westinghausen company. This is an experimental operation, it takes time until it completely burns out, how they behave is unknown.

    In fact, this is a violation of the rules. which I talked about earlier. A total of 163 fuel assemblies in the block. They decided not to buy fuel in Russia. When they fill the entire core with American assemblies, Russia will not be responsible for what happens next with the blocks or assemblies. That is, all responsibility for nuclear and radiation safety is assumed by Ukrainian experts. Russia cannot take responsibility. And there are a lot of nuances! For example, the distribution of neutron fluxes, the distribution of temperatures, there are a lot of factors affecting the quality and trouble-free operation.

    In order to allow or prohibit the use of other fuels, it is necessary to conduct a full study of the active zones with new fuel! Ukraine is not able to do this now, it does not have such specialists. Ukraine will invite the same Westinghausen. Westinghausen may do the research, but how much it will cost is unknown and how it will end is also unknown.

    But that's not all. Also under the Contract, spent Russian fuel is sent for processing to Russia, to Siberia to special plants. The fuel supplied by Westinghausen must be disposed of. Where will it go? It is clear, yes, what problem awaits Ukraine in this matter? Well, 60-80 fees will be placed in dry spent fuel storage facilities. There is such a system. In Ukraine, at the Zaparozh station they made such a system. Those. spent fuel after aging in the pool is sent to the site. But there are already all the sites filled! Well, it will stand there, but still it will need to be processed later. It is only the reactor fuel that does not need to be processed: it will stand idle for 7 years, and the resulting sand is absolutely non-radioactive. Who will process this fuel? What does it mean to build a spent fuel processing plant? It costs billions of dollars. Here is the problem.

    But Ukrainian officials do not want to think about tomorrow, about the next generation. What will Ukraine leave them? These storage facilities will soon occupy an area larger than the nuclear power plant itself. And that will be a huge problem. Russia will not be engaged in the processing of American fuel. Because every year, taking into account inflation, the price of processing goes up. Even if you want, given the closed borders of Ukraine and the sanctions, this is very difficult.

    If in addition to jokes, it will take to dismantle the fuel elements, and this will lead to serious radiation infection of the workshop in which this will be done, and people will immediately grab almost lethal doses. That is why the irradiated fuel is taken to the plant without dismantling and dissolved therein in acid, and then purely chemical and biological processing processes are already underway.

    Contrary to the sounding name, “delivery” is a very complicated process, since it includes not only the stages of transportation, but also its extraction, production and enrichment. Moreover, if Russia has full-cycle technologies, the United States has been unable to do this for a long time.

    A similar situation is observed among competitors and in the industry as a whole. Westinghouse - a few years ago, which was not just one of the largest players, but also the toughest competitor of Rosatom, today is losing. Attempts to use Washington's hardware resource are still being made, in particular, in Ukraine, where Westinghouse is trying to oust Russia from the nuclear fuel market or in Bulgaria, where the American lobby at one time did not allow the Belene project to open, but in general these are steps from impotence.

    By the middle of the first decade of the 2000s, Westinghouse was on the verge of becoming unprofitable. And knowing this, in 2006 the Americans completed their favorite financial maneuver - they sold the swelling problem to their geopolitical “friends”, in this case, Japan. A controlling stake in Westinghouse for $ 5,4 billion was acquired by the Japanese corporation Toshiba, and next year it was expected to face a loss.

    Having sold its problems to Tokyo, Washington rolled a Trojan horse into the competitor’s camp. Already by 2017, Westinghouse losses were Toshiba's key concern. And a year earlier, the Japanese company received a loss of $ 6,2 billion only in the first three quarters, despite the fact that in 2006 they bought a controlling stake for $ 5,4 billion.

      In reality, there is no talk about investments, and even a possible repair of Ukrainian nuclear power plants will most likely be in debt

      All Ukrainian nuclear power plants plan to modernize until 2024. The corresponding action program was signed by Energoatom and Turboatom, the press service of Energoatom said on Tuesday, August 27.
      Within five years, it is planned to replace the equipment of 15 power units of four Ukrainian nuclear power plants.
      "The program for the modernization of NPP equipment provides for the replacement of 8 turbine condensers of NPP power units, including, within the framework of import substitution, it is planned to replace 4 Russian-made capacitors. The total increase in capacity of nuclear power plants after the replacement of capacitors will be about 400 MW," the statement says.

      Also, as part of the modernization, they plan to improve turbine cylinders, which will increase their power.
      The second section of the Program provides for the modernization of the flow parts of turbine cylinders with a capacity of 200 MW and 1000 MW, including 5 turbines with a capacity of 1000 MW as part of the import substitution program. Modernization includes the replacement of rotor blades on existing rotors and a diaphragm, which will increase the turbine's power, its efficiency and solve other technical problems. Within the framework of the Program, it is planned to modernize high-pressure cylinders of turbines of ZAES starting in 2020. It is expected that the modernization of turbines will increase the capacity and efficiency of the existing power units of Ukrainian NPPs by 10%, which will provide a power increase of 70-100 MW at each unit.
      About 6 billion hryvnias are planned to be spent on the modernization of nuclear power plants.
      "We are significantly expanding our cooperation within the framework of the import substitution program, and this is especially important in the current political conditions. We discussed a long-term repair program - replacement of spare parts that have exhausted their resources," said Yuri Nedashkovsky, head of Energoatom.
      Recall that last summer the government approved a feasibility study for the construction of power units No. 3 and No. 4 of the Khmelnitsky NPP with a total value of 72 billion 342 million hryvnias. Estimated construction time is seven years.

      if in a word, Kharkov wants to displace all the turbines of the nuclear power plant and replace them with its own throughout Ukraine.
      This is primarily about the Leningrad Metal Plant (LMZ). To date, the company has manufactured 10 turbines with a capacity of 225 MW for the modernization and replacement of 200 MW turbine units manufactured by LMZ at TPPs of Ukraine. In 2015, the company was able to master the production of fifth-stage rotor blades with a length of 1200 mm from titanium alloy for rotors of 5 million-plus turbines of Ukrainian nuclear power plants. These blades are already operating at the Khmelnitsky and South Ukrainian NPPs. Although before they were delivered there by the Russian LMZ. Also last year, Turboatom was able to displace the Russian manufacturer during a radical modernization of power units No. 6 and No. 7 of the Slavyanskaya TPP.
      “Turboatom” was also involved in the completion of two power units (No. 3 and No. 4) of the Khmelnitsky NPP, where the installation of a factory turbine is planned, and the generator is from Kharkov “Electrotyazhmash”. Previously, Rosatom was to complete the completion of these power units. But in 2015, the Parliament denounced the agreement with the Russian Federation on the completion of the Khmelnitsky NPP.
      In general, Turboatom rules .. And in the Russian Federation, it squeezes out delivery routes and Russians squeezes them out of Ukraine and squeezes them out with the Swedes .. Kharkiv divided ..

        This crap is not necessary to be rewritten, I am aware. The plan for modernization is understandable, the question is that the modernization of nuclear power plants costs billions and all $. Where in Ukraine will free money come in such quantities?
        The modernization of the Armenian nuclear power plant and the extension of the operating life (which is also required by the Ukrainian nuclear power plant) came out at $ 300 mil. And there is only one power unit!

          for example, remember
          Loans are issued for 15 years, the interest rate on them is 1-2% per annum.
          The EBRD and Euroatom will allot 300 million euros each.

          this is to improve the safety of Ukrainian nuclear power plants.

            Loans are issued for 15 years, the interest rate on them is 1-2% per annum.
