While the full responsibility for creation and development of the nuclear infrastructure rests with the customer country, Rosatom State Corporation is ready to assist the customer country in the process of creation and improvement of the customer country’s national nuclear power program governance and regulation based on the experience of cooperation with foreign customers and in accordance with the IAEA recommendations.
Russia’s support in terms of the customer country’s national nuclear infrastructure development starts even before the selection of the nuclear design supplier. Development of the national nuclear infrastructure can start directly after the country government’s decision to study the possibility and feasibility of inclusion of peaceful use of atomic energy into the national energy strategy.
Development of the nuclear infrastructure at the early stages of national nuclear program preparation and implementation allows to minimize potential economic, social and political, nuclear, technical, administrative, financial and other risks for the implementation of the national nuclear power industry development program.
Rosatom State Corporation assists not only in the development of the basic nuclear infrastructure under the IAEA recommendations for construction of an NPP or a research reactor, but also helps to convert it into a platform for independent non-power nuclear businesses. For this purpose, we offer our clients to create unique centers of excellence that can not only guarantee safe nuclear power industry development in the country, but also become individual centers for scientific competence development and bring profit for the national economy.
In terms of arrangement, the proposed assistance is based on a typical nuclear infrastructure development project for a newcomer country adaptable to the country’s conditions and compatible with other national nuclear power industry development program projects.
Thus, Rosatom is prepared to render qualified assistance to the customer in terms of creation and support of all the required nuclear infrastructure components and maintain the same throughout the whole life cycle of the national nuclear power industry development program.Back
