Kazakhstan’s National Atomic Company Kazatomprom is interested in developing cooperation with Ukraine in various areas of the nuclear fuel cycle (NFC), including production of nuclear fuel in Kazakhstan for Ukrainian nuclear power plants (NPP), Kazatomprom has said.
The Kazakh Ministry of Energy and Kazatomprom plan to meet with the Ukrainian Ministry of Energy and Coal Industry to discuss cooperation in nuclear energy.
The date of the meeting is yet to be approved, the company said.
Ukrainian Minister of Energy Ihor Nasalyk said earlier that Kazakhstan had expressed the intention to help Ukraine finish the construction of a nuclear fuel plant in Ukraine.
“I am flying to Kazakhstan on August 18. Among other things, we are going to discuss Kazakhstan’s participation in the final stage of the project for construction of a nuclear fuel plant in Ukraine”, he said.
Kazatomprom is the national operator of the Republic of Kazakhstan for export of uranium and its compounds, rare metals, nuclear fuel for nuclear power plants, special equipment, technologies and dual-use materials. (Interfax/Business World Magazine)
