Rosatom’s Superconductors Successfully Tested for Future Colliders
The European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN, Switzerland) has successfully completed the acceptance testing of Russian-made niobium-tin superconductors made in the framework of the Future Circular Collider (FCC) CERN Conductor Development Program.
Rosatom starts construction of unique power unit with BREST-OD-300 fast neutron reactor

The construction of a 300 MW nuclear power unit enabled with the innovative BREST-OD-300 lead-cooled fast reactor has begun at the site of the Siberian Chemical Combine (an enterprise of Rosatom-subsidiary TVEL Fuel Company) in Seversk, Russia’s Tomsk region (South-West Siberia). The reactor will run on mixed uranium-plutonium nitride fuel (MNUP fuel), specially developed for this facility (it is considered to be the optimal solution for fast reactors).

Rosatom develops new fuel modification with lower uranium enrichment for Finland’s Loviisa NPP
TVEL Fuel Company of Rosatom has completed development of the new modification of VVER-440 fuel for Loviisa NPP in Finland. The new modification of VVER-440 fuel bundle with higher uranium load would enhance the efficiency of fuel usage and power plant’s operation in general.
TVEL subsidiary contracts supplies of nuclear fuel components for research reactor in Egypt

Novosibirsk Chemical Concentrates Plant (NCCP, an enterprise of TVEL Fuel Company of Rosatom) and the Egyptian Atomic Energy Agency (EAEA) signed the contractual documents for supplies of another batch of the low-enriched fuel components to Egypt in 2021.

Rosatom subsidiary acquires 49% stake in Korean power storage company

RENERA LLC, Rosatom’s integrator company for the energy storage business (subsidiary of TVEL Fuel Company of Rosatom) has finalized the deal to acquire 49% share of Enertech International Inc, a South Korean manufacturer of electrodes, lithium-ion storage cells and energy storage systems.

Rosatom completes new stages in ATF development program

Rosatom has completed the scheduled milestone in development of Russian accident tolerant fuel. The Research Institute of Atomic Reactors (NIIAR) in Dimitrovgrad, Ulyanovsk Region, has completed the second cycle of irradiation of the experimental fuel assemblies with VVER and PWR fuel rods in the MIR research reactor.

TVEL’s Elemash Machine-building plant launches new manufacturing site for CFR-600 fabrication
Elemash Machine-building plant (an enterprise of Rosatom’s TVEL Fuel Company in Elektrostal, Moscow region) has launched a production site for fuel fabrication for the CFR-600 reactor, China’s flagship project in the field of fast neutron reactors.
First generation nitride fuel developed for BREST-OD-300 fast reactor

Bochvar institute (research facility of TVEL Fuel Company of Rosatom) has developed fuel rod design based on nitride uranium-plutonium fuel (MNUP-fuel) for the BREST-OD-300 fast neutron reactor. This fuel rod project will be applied for commercial manufacturing of nitride fuel to be launched as part of the Pilot Demonstration Energy Complex, which is under construction in Seversk, Tomsk region (the “Proryv”, or “the Breakthrough” strategic industry project).

Rosatom facility gains record revenues from stable isotopes sales
In 2020, revenue from sales of stable isotopes manufactured by Electrochemical Plant JSC (an enterprise of ROSATOM’s TVEL Fuel Company in Zelenogorsk, Krasnoyarsk region) increased by 14% year-on-year, exceeding 1.5 billion rubles for the first time.
BN-800 fast reactor undergoes the first full refueling with MOX fuel

Power unit No. 4 of the Beloyarsk NPP with the BN-800 reactor has been connected to the grid and resumed operations upon completion of the scheduled maintenance. For the first time the refueling has been carried out with uranium-plutonium fuel only. The first batch of 18 MOX fuel assemblies was loaded into the reactor core in January 2020, and now 160 assemblies more of fresh MOX fuel have been added (replacing the assemblies with enriched uranium). Thus, the BN-800 core is now one-third filled with innovative fuel. From now on, only MOX fuel will be loaded into this reactor.
