TVEL completes the contract for supply of fuel pellets to India for Tarapur NPP

TVEL JSC has shipped to India the final consignment of uranium  fuel pellets for BWR reactors and thereby fulfilled the relevant contract with the Department of Atomic Energy of the Government of India.

The total volume of the supplied fuel pellets exceeded 50 tons, all shipments have carried out in 2019.

The fuel pellets made of low-enriched uranium dioxide were produced at Elemash (Machine-building plant), a fabrication facility of TVEL Fuel Company in Elektrostal, Moscow region. In India, the pellets will be used for fabrication of nuclear fuel assemblies for Tarapur NPP at the National Fuel Complex in Hyderabad, Telengana state.

Rosatom fuel division is capable of producing nuclear fuel components for all basic types of operational nuclear reactors. TVEL has a long-time successful track record of fuel pellets supplies to India for reactors of non-Russian design, such as BWR and PHWR, which is an evidence that our market offer is competitive and viable both technically and commercially. Should the Indian partners be interested, we are committed to accomplishment of similar contracts, as well as new projects in nuclear fuel cycle”, commented Oleg Grigoriyev, Senior Vice President for Commerce and International Business at TVEL JSC.

In the Indian market, TVEL JSC also provides shipments of complete fuel assemblies for the Russian-made VVER reactors at the two operating units of Kudankulam NPP, under the long-term contract with Nuclear Power Corporation of India Limited.

Tarapur NPP in Palghar district, Maharashtra state, is the first commercial nuclear power plant in India commissioned in 1969. Currently it is powered by two 150 MWe BWR reactors and two 490 MWe PHWR reactors (according to WNA data).
