ETRR-2, a research reactor of Argentinian design, is based at the Nuclear Research Center in Inshas, Egypt. It is used for research in particle physics and material studies, as well as for production of radioisotopes.
“The long-term contract is a logical follow-up to a number of several contractual documents for shipments of fuel components to Egypt, successfully fulfilled by NCCP in the past 3 years. This is an evidence of high level of trust in relations between TVEL and our Egyptian partners. Our facilities have more than 40 years of expertise in batch production of nuclear fuel for research reactors, we are capable of fuel components fabrication for all major types of existing nuclear reactors”, Oleg Grigoriyev, Senior VP for Commerce and International Business at TVEL, commented.
