TVEL Fuel Company of ROSATOM has supplied a range of nuclear fuel components for ETTR-2 research reactor in Egypt. The items were manufactured by Novosibirsk Chemical Concentrates Plant (NCCP PJSC, an enterprise of TVEL Fuel Company), which is the key Russian producer of nuclear fuel for research reactors. The shipments have been carried out under several contracts between NCCP PJSC and the Egyptian Atomic Energy Authority, which were signed earlier in 2018, with  coordination of TVEL JSC.


The supplied components will be used for fabrication of nuclear fuel for the ETRR-2 reactor at the Nuclear Research Center in Inshas. The Argentinian-design multipurpose nuclear reactor ETRR-2 is used for various researches in particle physics, materials engineering, nuclear medicine, as well as for production of stable isotopes.
