Russia’s Atommash, the equipment and component supply division of state nuclear corporation Rosatom and part of engineering holding Atomenergomash, expects to see its 10-year portfolio of orders reach RUB57bn in ($878m), Rosatom director-general Sergei Kiriyenko said during a visit to the plant on 19 September. Since 2012, Atommash works has been part of Rosatom as the Volgodonsk Branch of AEM-technology, and is currently manufacturing equipment for the Belarus NPP and India’s Kudankulam Phase II. It is preparing to start producing the essential components of reactors for Russia’s Kursk Phase II NPP and the Hanhikivi NPP in Finland. Kiriyenko said Rosatom plans to concentrate at Atommash “a large part of the machine engineering capacities” for “manufacturing a major part of the nuclear steam supply system”. He noted that the growth of the operational and financial performance of the facility was mainly due to a large-scale modernisation programme that Rosatom had undertaken in 2012 at a cost of RUB2bn. According to figures from the Rostov Region Administration, the proceeds of Atommash were RUB2.585bn in 2013, RUB4.094bn in 2014, and RUB4.726bn in 2015. Revenue for 2016 is expected to be RUB7.636bn.
