Earlier, in compliance with the relevant documents signed in 2017, a stock of fresh nuclear fuel was formed at the site of the power plant.

"The latest supplement to the general contract will provide for all the needs of Armenian NPP in fresh nuclear fuel, as well as replenish the existing fuel stock at the power plant, which secures reliable fuel supply for the reactor. TVEL traditionally offers the Armenian partners nuclear fuel supplies on favorable conditions. Along with other matters, we take into account the ongoing life extension works at the only nuclear power unit in the country, as the project currently limits power generation output of the facility." Oleg Grigoriyev, Senior Vice-President for Commerce and International Business at TVEL JSC, commented.

The general fuel contract between TVEL JSC and Armenian NPP is valid for the whole useful life of unit, including its life extension. The Armenia's sole 407.5 MW nuclear power unit with VVER-440 reactor is running on chatter-resistant fuel produced by Machine-Building Plant, TVEL's fabrication facility in Elektrostal, Moscow region.

I think our members have understood that one of the biggest issues going forward is making sure that we have a new generation of young people that can take up the work of developing, deploying and operating nuclear facilities in the future.

I think the fact that the world's two largest nuclear complexes are proceeding in total isolation from each other is a danger to each of us and a danger to the rest of the world as well. And we have to find the way to fix it.



For each nation or region, the scope and depth of governmental supervision on export controls over organisations should be proportionate to what type of organisation it is, its track record, and the risk to proliferation it poses.
