Kazatomprom has expanded its activities to encompass the entire front-end NFC, including enrichment, production of UO2 powders/fuel pellets, and in the near future plans to begin production of fuel assemblies.
In October 2013, Kazatomprom through the Kazakh-Russian joint venture Uranium Enrichment Center JSC became a shareholder of Ural Electrochemical Plant JSC, which is the largest uranium enrichment enterprise in the world. 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 production Kazatomprom is working on transfer of innovative technologies to Kazakhstan.
Kazatomprom's Subsidiary - Ulba Metallurgical Plant JSC provides services for reconversion and production of fuel pellets.
For nearly 40 years, Ulba Metallurgical Plant provided services for reconversion and production of uranium dioxide fuel pellets for Light Water Reactors.
Kazatomprom and China General Nuclear Power Corporation (CGNPC) are jointly implementing a project to construct a plant for the production of fuel assemblies based on Ulba Metallurgical Plant for use in Chinese nuclear power plants. The production of fuel assemblies at this new plant is expected to begin at the end of 2020.
