The company carries out a preparatory work for the implementation of projects that will enter to the market of natural uranium and the fabrication of nuclear fuel conversion. Uranium business is a key strategic activity for JSC "NAC "Kazatomprom".
Today, JSC "NAC" Kazatomprom "is presented in the nuclear fuel cycle in the following segments:
- Production of natural uranium;
Production of uranium oxide;
Uranium enrichment and production of nuclear fuel components (uranium dioxide powders and fuel pellets of uranium dioxide).
In addition to the main activities, JSC "NAC "Kazatomprom" operates in related high-tech industries such as:
Production of tantalum, beryllium and niobium products (on the basis of "UMP" JSC);
Production of rare earth products (on the basis of "joint venture" "SARECO" LLP);
Production of photovoltaic modules (in the framework of the project KazPV).
JSC "NAC "Kazatomprom" with a joint Russian-Kazakh venture CJSC "UEC ", embarked on the practical implementation of the output to the uranium enrichment market (separation of uranium isotopes).
Currently, the main purpose of JSC "NAC "Kazatomprom" is the implementation of the transition to the production of uranium products with high added price, it is necessary to diversify activities in all parts of the front-end of the nuclear fuel cycle and thus be on the strategic perspective to have more conditions for long-term deliveries of Kazakhstan uranium in the form of nuclear fuel (integrated package) and uranium hexafluoride (including enriched) to the world market, by providing conversion, enrichment and fabrication services.
To achieve this goal, JSC "NAC "Kazatomprom" implements the projects for organizations the conversion of production and the production of fuel assemblies (fuel assemblies for nuclear power plants) in Kazakhstan.
