Rosatom goes to Africa, and also concludes contracts with Poland and France

34
Rosatom State Corporation reports on the successful promotion of its products and technologies to foreign markets. The company's press service spreads the message that Russia is ready to sign a contract for the construction of a center for nuclear technology in Zambia. The intergovernmental agreement is ultimately aimed at developing nuclear energy in Africa.


Rosatom goes to Africa, and also concludes contracts with Poland and France


Given the fact that, according to the IMF, more than 80% of the population of Zambia live below the poverty line, the question arises how much is Zambia, which occupies the 140 place in the world in terms of GDP per capita, able to develop atomic energy? The solvency of Zambia also raises questions regarding the implementation of such ambitious projects as the construction of a nuclear technology center.

Press Service of Rosatom reports on other external directions of interaction. So, today, within the framework of the Atomexpo-2016 forum, which is structurally part of Rosatom, TVEL has contracted with the Polish National Center for Nuclear Research for the supply of so-called nuclear targets for the Polish research reactor Maria.

Director of the Polish NTSCI Krzysztof Kurek:
The contract we signed today is the second in a row. The fuel company will supply us with nuclear targets for research and medical purposes. As in the case of the first contract, the choice of TVEL JSC as a supplier of nuclear targets was made thanks to an exceptionally advantageous offer - the best on the market in terms of quality and price.


In addition, an agreement was signed between Rosatom and French partners from Schneider Electric. From the message of the press service of "Rosatom":
The promotion program determines the detailed format and timing of cooperation on localization by Schneider Electric for the production of electrical equipment and automated process control systems at Rosatom enterprises as part of NPP construction projects in third countries.

The signing of this document once again demonstrates the desire of the two enterprises to deepen cooperation and strengthen long-term and successful cooperation.


Against the background of Rosatom’s international deals and interest in Russian products from a number of countries around the world, Mr. Kudrin’s words about the “technological backwardness of Russia” that he expressed during the meeting of the Economic Advisory Council under the President of the Russian Federation are recalled ...

      Do you really think so that there are sheer ignoramuses? In vain, there are a lot of capable there, and South Africa has its own nuclear program. The time of cannibals and Zusuls with the "Iron Kaput" is over. We will train specialists, even from those pygmies ...

      The contract with the French is somewhat complicated, but it can be understood that Rosatom will install electrical equipment from a French firm outside Russia during the construction of nuclear power plants, while the Poles buy only targets. The main hope is Zambia. smile It is strange that, based on this information, the author sneers at the words of Kudrin. Kudrin I do not like the same, but from this list the deal with the French is not very encouraging, the contract with the Poles is neither fish nor meat, but Zambia is our everything good .

          This information was already on this site, Rosatom signed an agreement of intent with an unknown company, therefore, in the clickable text you provided, I read that Rosatom hopes, waits, etc. etc.

            Allowed myself to highlight in bold for understanding, so to speak. wink Well, there’s practically no doubt that the US Congress commission will approve this deal. Yankees are very sensitive to their personal well-being and profit issues, so they will turn a blind eye to some anti-Russian sanctions, if necessary.

              Let it be world famous, but this is just an agreement of intent, any Western government will put pressure on its producers and will not allow cooperation with Rosatom in such a sensitive area in real life.

Exactly the same project was promoted by Rosatom in Hungary, the conditions were gorgeous - the whole construction was funded by Rosatom, that is, Russia, and Rosatom would start receiving money from the operation of the nuclear power plant, that is, in the best case, in a few decs

            I watched 9 minutes of the video, everything is clear to me, nuclear energy is not an economic project, but a political one, Rosatom builds nuclear power plants in foreign countries with the money of the Russian budget and offers super-favorable conditions in order to tie these countries to Russia, this is It’s a no brainer, but an official in the United States for a long time, which is why, in the light of current international relations, no one in the United States will allow the implementation of this agreement. And in the ninth minute of this video, I did not see how the Russian "bull covers a sheep" laughing .

              They didn’t look in vain ...
              did not watch. but noted the answer.
              I'm sorry. but these are usually called "pervonakh" on entertainment portals. With a negative connotation.


              And there was a lot of interesting things.

              And about the effect of nuclear power on the economy. Friends and strangers.
              and about the impact of nuclear power plants on the population of their own and other countries.
              A lot of interesting things - looked at one go.

              The ending made it clear that the railguns are the reality of the near future.
              The capacity of the latest nickel isotope energy storage devices is 50ACH in the size of a matchbox (half an iPhone).
              When Kiriyenko says such things, I fully believe.
              For he is really a smart person, he is succinctly brief, understandably everything is conveyed.

            The press service of the company spreads the message that Russia is ready to sign a contract for the construction of a nuclear technology center in Zambia

            A strange choice belay
            Zambia is the poorest country in the world [11], 82% of the population lives below the poverty line [12].

            During the reign of Kenneth Kaunda, the socialist type of economy prevailed in the country. After the transition to a multi-party system in 1991, economic reform began. The transition to private entrepreneurship has led to economic growth.

            GDP per capita in 2009 - 1,5 thousand dollars (200th place in the world).

            Until now, 85% of the employed are employed in agriculture (19% of GDP). Cultivated - corn, sorghum, rice, peanuts, sunflowers, vegetables, tobacco, cotton, sugarcane, tapioca, coffee. Cattle, goats, pigs, poultry are bred.

            Industry (6% of employees, 31% of GDP) - mining of copper ore and other metals, processing of agricultural products.

            Monetary unit of Zambia - kwacha, consists of 100 ngwee.

      Wiki article on the geography of Zambia.

      The Lufilian Arc is located in the north of Zambia; famous deposits of copper and other ores are localized in the folds of its deposits.

      The most important minerals of Zambia: coal, copper ore, cobalt, lead, zinc, tin, gold. There are deposits of iron ore, uranium, nickel, fluorite, some precious stones, etc. Coal deposits are located in the south of the country, near the northwest coast of Lake Caribou, as well as in the central regions of Zambia. In terms of copper reserves, Zambia occupies one of the leading positions among all countries in the world (according to 2008 year data, it is 9 in place). Deposits of copper are confined to the Copper zone of Central Africa, on the border with the DRC. The tin deposits are rather small; all of them are located in the south of the country.

      "... White people built stone bungalows with our own hands, began to live in them and gave us water, rice and smartphones. And we allowed them to take large heavy stones that we got them from a deep well ..."

And our friends, the Poles, also need to help. Otherwise, they do not have enough electricity resources to service NATO bases. Well, God himself ordered the French to help. After all, they helped us so much with their Mistrals ... Who else could we sign contracts with? With the Turks, or something ...

    Do you really think so that there are sheer ignoramuses? In vain, there are a lot of capable there, and South Africa has its own nuclear program. The time of cannibals and Zusuls with the "Iron Kaput" is over. We will train specialists, even from those pygmies ...

    Rosatom concludes contracts for the entire life cycle of a nuclear power plant: construction, training of specialists, repair, fuel supply, decommissioning. Creation of an entire industry, if need be.
