Rosatom completes new stages in ATF development program

Rosatom has completed the scheduled milestone in development of Russian accident tolerant fuel. The Research Institute of Atomic Reactors (NIIAR) in Dimitrovgrad, Ulyanovsk Region, has completed the second cycle of irradiation of the experimental fuel assemblies with VVER and PWR fuel rods in the MIR research reactor.

TVEL’s Elemash Machine-building plant launches new manufacturing site for CFR-600 fabrication
Elemash Machine-building plant (an enterprise of Rosatom’s TVEL Fuel Company in Elektrostal, Moscow region) has launched a production site for fuel fabrication for the CFR-600 reactor, China’s flagship project in the field of fast neutron reactors.
First generation nitride fuel developed for BREST-OD-300 fast reactor

Bochvar institute (research facility of TVEL Fuel Company of Rosatom) has developed fuel rod design based on nitride uranium-plutonium fuel (MNUP-fuel) for the BREST-OD-300 fast neutron reactor. This fuel rod project will be applied for commercial manufacturing of nitride fuel to be launched as part of the Pilot Demonstration Energy Complex, which is under construction in Seversk, Tomsk region (the “Proryv”, or “the Breakthrough” strategic industry project).

Rosatom facility gains record revenues from stable isotopes sales
In 2020, revenue from sales of stable isotopes manufactured by Electrochemical Plant JSC (an enterprise of ROSATOM’s TVEL Fuel Company in Zelenogorsk, Krasnoyarsk region) increased by 14% year-on-year, exceeding 1.5 billion rubles for the first time.
BN-800 fast reactor undergoes the first full refueling with MOX fuel

Power unit No. 4 of the Beloyarsk NPP with the BN-800 reactor has been connected to the grid and resumed operations upon completion of the scheduled maintenance. For the first time the refueling has been carried out with uranium-plutonium fuel only. The first batch of 18 MOX fuel assemblies was loaded into the reactor core in January 2020, and now 160 assemblies more of fresh MOX fuel have been added (replacing the assemblies with enriched uranium). Thus, the BN-800 core is now one-third filled with innovative fuel. From now on, only MOX fuel will be loaded into this reactor.

Rosatom will manufacture unique equipment for the BREST-OD-300 power unit
Within the project of construction of the power unit with the BREST-OD-300 fast neutron reactor at the site of the Siberian Chemical Combine (SCC, an enterprise of TVEL Fuel Company of Rosatom in Seversk, Tomsk Region, West Siberia), the contracts are signed for manufacturing and supply of main technological equipment of the reactor installation.
Rosatom develops the nuclear fuel elements for the nuclear icebreaker Leader

Bochvar Institute (VNIINM, a research facility of TVEL Fuel Company of Rosatom) has developed hardware components for the reactor core of the ultra-large nuclear icebreaker Project 10510 also known as the Leader. Under the contract with Afrikantov OKB Mechanical Engineering (Rosatom company, developer of nuclear reactors), the institute team has developed technical designs of a starting neutron source, a fuel rod and a burnable poison rod. Besides, a structure pipe made of E635 zirconium alloy was designed and launched into production at the Chepetsk Mechanical Plant (a facility of TVEL Fuel Company of Rosatom). This structure pipe is used to accommodate the rods of compensating groups of the reactor control and protection system.

Rosatom launches its first Additive Technologies Center in Moscow
