Rosatom expands nuclear power supply chain

Rosatom, Russia’s nuclear energy state corporation, on June 20 said an additional 13 companies from the Czech Republic signed memoranda of cooperation with Rusatom Overseas, a subsidiary of Rosatom.

Rosatom said the agreements define the basic conditions of long-term cooperation between the Czech signatories and the Rosatom Group in the manufacture, assembly and construction of nuclear power plants with VVER reactors in the Czech Republic, the Russian Federation and on the global market.

Rusatom Overseas Executive Vice President Leoš Tomíček said Rosatom is currently building 28 reactors worldwide and the agreements expand Rosatom’s supply chain for future projects.

“In the next twenty years we plan to purchase equipment and services for the constructed nuclear facilities worth more than $300 billion,” Tomíček said.

Rosatom has signed similar agreements with 25 additional Czech and Slovak companies in the past.
