Ukraine has sufficient stocks of nuclear fuel. It is expected to be sufficient for two years of operation. This was said by the chief NAEC Energoatom Petro Kotin on Sunday, November 27 in the consolidated news marathon broadcast.
He also said that Ukraine plans to launch its own production.
“We are working with Westinghouse to create our own line of fuels based on their technologies. We already produce the US company-licensed fuel cartridge heads and shafts. We will make half of it ourselves, and Westinghouse will supply the other half.”
He noted that since the beginning of the large-scale invasion, Ukraine has stopped buying Russian nuclear fuel, relying on its own reserves.
“Currently, Energoatom plans to convert all Ukrainian nuclear power plants running on Russian fuel to Westinghouse fuel,” said the head of Energoatom.
Energoatom explained the day before NPP Zaporizhya was supplied for its own use from the Ukrainian power grid after a power outage caused by a Russian missile attack.
