“Nuclear facilities decommissioning and dismantling, radioactive waste and spent fuel management along with solving relevant issues of radiation safety represent a challenging task both from the environmental point of view, that is fully in line with the UN Sustainable Development Goals, and in terms of the growing decommissioning market that, as per current forecasts, may exceed EUR 100 billion by 2030.  Enterprises of TVEL Fuel Company have already gained a vast expertise in accomplishing such complex high tech projects. By means of comprising these expertise and positive references in one integrating entity, we are able to act as a universal subcontractor. Creation of alliances with our partners abroad would enable us not only to enhance our competences, but also to work in the foreign markets in a more efficient manner”, Dmitry Bazhenov commented.
