TVEL made a contract to supply Tarapur with enriched uranium fuel pellets

On 3 March 2015, TVEL Fuel Company signed another contract with the Indian Department of Atomic Energy for the supply of enriched uranium fuel pellets. A series of shipments is planned to be made in 2015 to the Nuclear Fuel Center in Hyderabad, a fuel assembly production site for the Tarapur Atomic Power Station. Russia has been supplying nuclear fuel components for the Indian boiling water reactor since 2000. The Tarapur Atomic Power Station (TAPS) is under IAEA safeguards.

The fuel pellets are produced by Elemash, which has long been a reliable partner with TAPS.

As part of cooperation with the Indian Department of Atomic Energy, TVEL also supplies its nuclear fuel for the first and second power units of the Kudankulam Nuclear Power Plant under a life-cycle contract. In addition, the Russian-Indian cooperation extends to shipments of nuclear fuel components as TVEL supplies natural enriched uranium dioxide pellets for the Rajasthan Atomic Power Station (PHWR reactor).

Following 2014, new contracts between TVEL and its foreign partners exceeded USD 3.0 billion, with the 10-year order portfolio maintained at over USD 10.0 billion. In 2014, TVEL signed fuel supply contracts with nuclear power stations in Hungary, Slovakia and Finland, and research reactors in the Netherlands, Czech Republic, and Uzbekistan.
