Representatives of Ukrainian nuclear operator Energoatom and US-based Westinghouse Electric Company met today to discuss the possible introduction of Westinghouse-made fuel into Units-1 and -2 of the Rovno nuclear power station in western Ukraine.

Energoatom said the purpose of the meeting was for the Ukrainian team to study foreign experience with the operation of VVER-440 type reactors running on Westinghouse fuel.

The US company used to supply VVER-440 fuel for Finland’s two-unit Loviisa nuclear power station, but in 2009 ceased production of this particular fuel type. In 2014, Westinghouse began examining the option of restarting its VVER-440 fuel production capabilities.

Earlier this year, Westinghouse said it was interested in supplying fuel for Ukraine’s Rovno nuclear station.
