China will have the world's largest nuclear power fleet within a decade, while most of the units in longstanding nuclear regions - Japan, the European Union and the USA - are facing the end of their original 40-year design lifetime, Brent Wanner, lead of World Energy Outlook Power Sector Modelling & Analysis at the International Energy Agency (IEA), said yesterday. Without policy support for the long-term operation of the existing fleet, this trend is certain to continue, he told delegates at the High-Level Workshop on Nuclear Power in Clean Energy Transitions, which the IEA held jointly with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).

OMZ-Spetsstal (part of Russia’s OMZ Group) on 16 February shipped to AEM-Technologies (part of Rosatom) a batch of blanks for the reactor baffles for India’s Kudankulam NPP, and China’s Tianwan and Xudabao NPPs. The reactor baffle is a cylindrical structure 3845 mm in diameter and 4070 mm in height, consisting of five forged rings 980 mm in height and a faceted belt of the baffle with a height of 150 mm, fastened together. The baffle forms the reactor core and serves as a neutron shield. According to the contract, OMZ-Special Steels manufactured and dispatched to the customer four metallurgical billets with a total weight of about 90 tons: two for the sixth power unit of the Kudankulam NPP, one for the eighth power unit of the Tianwan NPP and one for the third power unit of the Xudabao NPP. The baffle assembly based on metallurgical billets produced by OMZ-Spetsstal will be carried out at the Volgodonsk branch of AEM-technologies - Atommash.

Energy consumption from fossil fuels is expected to decrease due to a stated commitment to lower carbon dioxide emissions and address climate change. This reduction will inevitably increase demand for other energy sources, including nuclear – currently the fastest growing source of energy worldwide. Many countries have stated plans to build new nuclear reactors to cope with demand, including China, India, Russia, UK, and the USA. Others are investing heavily in upgrading existing facilities, including Canada and France.
