Rosatom to make REMIX fuel for VVER-1000 reactors

Russia’s integrated nuclear power player Rosatom will make uranium-plutonium REMIX fuel matrix for VVER-1000 reactors, the company said. According to Rosatom, the remix fuel will be made at the site of the Siberian Chemical Combine (SCC) — part of TVEL Fuel Company, a group company.

The shop floor of SCC will be modernised and the Investment Committee of Rosatom has accorded the sanction.

According to Rosatom, modernisation of the shop-floor will result in the launch of a new production line for assembling VVER-1000 fuel rods and fuel bundles of TVS-2M model, including the installations, ensuring multilevel quality control.

The uranium-plutonium fuel pellet project is expected to be accomplished in 2023.
