Production of nuclear fuel cycle (NFC)

Diversification of production in all parts of the nuclear fuel cycle is one of the main strategic directions of development of JSC "NAC "Kazatomprom".

In October 2013, JSC "NAC "Kazatomprom" through the Kazakh-Russian joint venture JSC "UEC" became a shareholder of JSC "Ural Electrochemical Plant", which is the largest enterprise on uranium enrichment. This cooperation in the peaceful use of nuclear energy has enabled the company to gain access to uranium enrichment services. At the same time, in order to create the conversion of production, JSC "NAC "Kazatomprom" is working on transfer of innovative technologies in Kazakhstan.

JSC "NAC "Kazatomprom" and China General Nuclear Power Corporation (CGN) are jointly implementing a project on construction of a plant for the production of fuel assemblies based on Ulba Metallurgical Plant (UMP, Ust-Kamenogorsk) for use in nuclear power plants of China as a nuclear fuel. The production of fuel assemblies will begin in late 2020.
