CNNC ships LEU fuel to convert Nigeria MNSR

CNNC, PUBLISHED 21.10.2018

The low enriched uranium (LEU) fuel of Nigerias miniature neutron source reactor (MNSR) conversion project, undertaken by China National Nuclear Corporation (CNNC), launched the shipment in China Institute of Atomic Energy on Oct 15.

Its a practice to cash in Chinas promise in actively driving the development of the low enriched uranium at miniature neutron source reactor in Nigeria, a new measure to guarantee global nuclear safety.

The LEU-MNSR project is a critical part of the China-US Joint Statement negotiated at the 4th Nuclear Security Summit and a solemn commitment made by the Chinese government to the world.

CNNC accomplished the prototype LEU project in 2016 and succeeded in completing the Ghana LEU-MNSR project, which won wide acclaim at home and abroad and formed the Ghana model recognized by the IAEA.

It has been a great trip for me. I learned more about what the Russian organizations are doing. We saw some new opportunities for cooperation and also I heard about some activities I would like to learn more about.

When I look at the past, I've always thought that cooperation was extremely important.My feeling is that we did a lot of good; there were a lot of benefits to both countries. It's often not appreciated that it was actually beneficial to both countries. Itis unfortunate that it came pretty much to an end between U.S. and Russia.
