Baku, April 13, AZERTAC

Nuclear fuel for Temelín, one of the Czech Republic’s two nuclear power stations, will be supplied by American firm Westinghouse and France’s Framatome from 2024, a spokesperson for power company CEZ said on Tuesday, according to Radio Prague International. Temelín currently uses fuel from the Russian company TVEL, which is part of the state holding Rosatom.

The new contract for nuclear fuel will run for 15 years and be worth billions of crowns, CEZ said.
