Nigeria’s Federal Government on 15 July inaugurated the reconstituted Russian-Nigerian Joint Coordination Committee (JCC) on National Atomic Energy. Boss Mustapha, the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, said the reconstitution of JCC was to resuscitate the relationship between the two countries in cooperation for the peaceful use of nuclear energy. However, he recalled that within the framework of Nigeria’s bilateral relation with the Russian Federation, a number of Inter-governmental Agreements (IGAs) had been signed between the Nigeria Atomic Energy Commission (NAEC) and Russian State Nuclear Corporation Rosatom.

An Egyptian official said the country plans to build “several nuclear plants in various regions” as it looks for ways of generating reliable baseload power to meet development and economic needs.

Hesham Hegazy, head of the nuclear fuel sector at the Nuclear Power Plants Authority (NPPA), said the country is seeking to have a nuclear share of 8% by 2030. He made the comments during a panel discussion held by Russia’s state nuclear corporation Rosatom on the role of nuclear energy in sustainable development.

Rosatom is helping Egypt build four Generation III+ VVER-1200 reactors at the El Dabaa nuclear site, about 300 km northwest of the capital Cairo on the Mediterranean coast.

Russia’s AA Bochvar Institute of Inorganic Materials (VNIINM – part of Rosatom’s Fuel Company TVEL) has developed a basic version of the technological tritium cycle for modernisation of the strong field tokamak (TSP) at the Troitsk Institute of Innovative and Thermonuclear Research (TRINITI). The work is taking place within the framework of the federal project "Development of technologies for controlled thermonuclear fusion and innovative plasma technologies", part of the comprehensive programme "Development of equipment, technologies and research in the use of atomic energy for the period up to 2024". VNIINM’s department of special non-nuclear materials and isotopic products together with the specialists from TRINITI have developed the basic version of the technological tritium cycle for the experimental modified high-field tokamak.

Courtesy IAEA. An International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) team of experts has completed a nuclear security advisory mission in Belarus, saying the country has demonstrated its strong commitment and continuous efforts to improve its national nuclear security regime.

The scope of the two-week International Physical Protection Advisory Service (IPPAS) mission, carried out at the request of Belarus’ government, was to review the national security regime for nuclear material and associated facilities and activities. It included a review of physical protection measures at Belarus’ first commercial nuclear power plant, Belarus-1, at the Ostrovets site, security aspects related to the transport of nuclear material, and to computer security in nuclear facilities.

The team said Belarus has established a nuclear security regime with essential elements from the IAEA’s guidance on the fundamentals of nuclear security.

Russia’s Kaliningrad plant is among options Image Courtesy Flickr/Lukas Plewnia. Poland’s fourth largest electricity producer and operator of four coal-fired power plants ZE PAK might be interested to invest in the construction of nuclear power plants in Poland and overseas as a way to transition away from fossil fuel generation, the Polsat broadcasting media reported.

"ZE PAK is considering many options, including participation in the construction of a nuclear power plant in Poland from scratch, which will most likely take many years”, said Tomasz Matwiejczuk, a spokesman for Polish billionaire Zygmunt Solorz, majority shareholder of ZE PAK and Polsat.

"Another option could be a capital investment in foreign assets, with one of the options analysed being a potential investment together with other reputable and experienced partners in the nuclear power plant already under construction in [Russia’s] Kaliningrad district”, Mr Matwiejczuk said according to Polsat.

Representatives of China National Nuclear Corporation (CNNC), led by Assistant General Manager Liu Mingzhang, together with specialists from Russia’s OKBM Afrikantov, conducted an audit at ZiO-Podolsk (part of Rosatom's mechanical engineering division Atomenergomash) to assess progress in the manufacture of equipment intended for China’s pool-type sodium-cooled fast neutron reactor CFR-600, Atomenergomash said on 6 July. The reactor is intended for unit 1 of the Xiapu fast reactor demonstration project. ZiO-Podolsk will manufacture and supply heat exchange modules for steam generators including 16 evaporators and 16 superheaters. ZiO-Podolsk manufactured similar equipment for Russia’s Beloyarsk NPP and China’s first experimental fast neutron reactor, CEFR.
