Contract signed for fuel supply to Egypt’s research reactor

3 May 2022

The Egyptian Atomic Energy Organisation (EAEA) and the Novosibirsk Chemical Concentrates Plant (NCCP – part of Rosatom’s TVEL fuel company) have signed contract documents for the supply to Egypt in 2022 of the next batch of low-enriched nuclear fuel components for Egypt’s ETRR-2 research reactor.

This comes within the framework of a long-term framework contract for the export to Egypt of nuclear fuel components concluded in 2020.

The product range includes uranium components as well as aluminium alloy and aluminium powder products. Cooperation with Egypt in the supply of fuel components for the ETRR-2 has been developed over more than five years “which is a good prerequisite for the development of cooperation in the future”, said Alexei Zhiganin, Director General of NCCP.

The ETRR-2 research reactor, supplied by Argentina’s INVAP, is located at the Egyptian National Nuclear Research Centre in the city of Inshas. It is used for scientific research in the field of elementary particle physics, materials science, and also for the production of radioisotopes.
