Kyiv is moving to end its nuclear energy industry’s dependence on Russia The agreements were signed on 2 June at the site of the Khmelnitski nuclear station by Energoatom chief executive Petro Kotin and his Westinghouse counterpart Patrick Fragman. US-based Westinghouse Electric Company has signed agreements with Ukraine’s state-owned nuclear operator Energoatom for the supply of nuclear fuel for the country’s entire reactor fleet and an ambitious expansion of a planned AP1000 new-build programme.

The company said the fuel will be supplied by its manufacturing facility at Västerås in Sweden, but gave no timeframe for the project.

The agreements foresee also “continued localisation” of fuel component production in Ukraine by Energoatom subsidiary Atomenergomash, which is expected to produce top and bottom nozzles for the Westinghouse fuel assemblies.

Under earlier contracts, Westinghouse had already supplied fuel for VVER-1000 pressurised water reactor (PWR) designs for six of Ukraine’s 15 commercial nuclear units – South Ukraine-2 and -3, and Zaporizhzhia (Zaporozhye)-1, -3, -4 and -5.
