On May, 30 within the frames of “ATOMEXPO-2016” International Forum the talks were held between the top executives of JSC TVEL and the Director General of JSC “Aikakai Atomaiin Electakayan” (Republic of Armenia) Mr. Movses Vardanjan. During the meeting the prospects for future cooperation were reviewed, in particular the possibility of additional supply of Russian nuclear fuel to the reserve.
Mr. Movses Vardanjan has noticed that for nearly forty years Armenian Nuclear Power Plant (ANPP) operates using Russian nuclear fuel. Many years of cooperation with JSC TVEL allows to speak about the Russian company as a reliable supplier. “Tight and mutually beneficial cooperation has always been the feature of Russian and Armenian nuclear power industry workers, - the Director General of ANPP has stressed. – During all years of operation ANPP has been exclusively utilizing Russian nuclear fuel, which has demonstrated its high performance. I hope that during further operation we’ll have the opportunity to utilize nuclear fuel of such high quality”.
Mr. Movses Vardanjan has also underscored that during all years of operation there was not a single case of non-compliance to the contractual terms of supply of fuel assemblies to Armenian NPP. In accordance to Mr. Vardanjan statement, JSC TVEL and ANPP presently review the possibility to establish nuclear fuel reserve for Armenian NPP.
