Kiev to invest $334m over next five years in mining and processing Ukraine has 15 commercial nuclear power plants including four at the Rovno nuclear station (pictured). Ukraine is aiming to increase its uranium production to cover fully the needs of its nuclear power units after 2026, the government said.

Under a national programme, Ukraine will invest 9.1 billion hryvnia ($334m) over the next five years to increase uranium mining and processing facilities.

The government said production at four Ukrainian uranium deposits would total 995 tonnes in 2022 and should rise to 1,265 tonnes in 2026.

It gave no uranium output figure for 2021 but said current production meets around 40% of Ukraine’s needs for nuclear fuel. The rest comes from imports from Russia and the US.

Ukraine’s 15 commercial nuclear power plants, which according to the International Atomic Energy Agency provided about 51% of the country’s electricity production in 2020, need 2,200 to 2,400 tonnes of uranium per year, the government said.
