 Russia, Argentina sign nuclear fuel supply agreement

An agreement was signed that would allow Russia-owned Rosatom to build a sixth nuclear power plant in Argentina.
 
Rosatom’s nuclear fuel manufacturing unit, TVEL, signed two Memorandums of Understanding with the National Atomic Energy Commission of Argentina (CNEA) and design and construction company Invap SE, according to World Nuclear News.
 
The MOU includes cooperation in the deliveries of low-enriched uranium fuel and its components for research and power generating reactors in Argentina; supplies of TVEL-developed zirconium components of the nuclear fuel cycle, and joint research and development projects, the article said.
 
Argentina has three pressurized heavy water reactors in operation: the 335-MW Atucha 1, the 660-MW Embalse and the 745-MW Atucha 2.
