A joint venture between Kazakhstan’s Kazatomprom and China’s General Nuclear Power Corporation (CGN) will start producing nuclear fuel assemblies for the Chinese reactor fleet in 2021, the Kazakh company told NucNet.

A new fuel assembly factory will produce the fuel based on technology provided by France’s Framatome, Kazatomprom said.

Kazatomprom said a new company, Ulba-TVS, jointly owned by Kazatomprom and CGN, is responsible for the construction and future operation of the facility near Ust-Kamenogorsk in eastern Kazakhstan.
