Kazatomprom Changes Work Plan for 2024

The National Atomic Company of Kazakhstan, Kazatomprom has announced that it was forced to make changes to its production plan for the current year. The main reason for the changes was a reduction in the supply of substances needed for uranium mining in Kazakhstan. In addition, it is reported that the heads of the nuclear company recognized the impossibility of implementing the approved plans to create the infrastructure necessary for new mines. The news was published by the official press service of the National Atomic Company. In 2022, the management of Kazatomprom announced the successful conclusion of a number of contracts and laid out a plan to increase uranium production over the next 2-3 years. In figures, it was set to produce 80% of the subsoil use contracts in 2023, and 90% in 2024. However, it became clear that these plans were not feasible due to concerns about increasing production. They were also rendered impossible due to changes in global imports, meaning Kazakhstan was unable to establish a supply chain of key materials and reagents for the plant, and alternative sources of necessary materials are yet to be found. Kazatomprom's press service also reported that a shortage of sulfuric acid is expected in 2024. The management of the National Atomic Company reports that it hopes to fulfill all its obligations to customers and will make every effort to do so. However, the 2025 development plan may also be revised if the supply problem persists. Changes to the current year's plan will be submitted by February 1st.

Kazatomprom Qualifies for Production of Advanced Nuclear Fuel

Kazakhstan’s National Atomic Company, Kazatomprom, the world's largest producer of uranium, says it has successfully completed the qualification process for the production of AFA 3G TM type A fuel assemblies at the Kazakh-Chinese Joint Venture, Ulba-FA LLP, which produces nuclear fuel for Chinese nuclear power plants. A document confirming the technical compliance of the product with all the mandatory quality requirements, norms and standards was provided by Framatome, the holder of technology. Work on the qualification for fuel assemblies’ production started in March 2023. As a result, the plant successfully received confirmation on the quality of its products. The qualification allows the plant to produce AFA 3G TM type A fuel assemblies, in addition to AFA 3G TM AA fuel assemblies, thus expanding the product line, Kazatomprom said. In 2024, Kazatomprom plans to commission industrial production of AFA 3GTM type A fuel assemblies and supply a batch of fuel assemblies of this type to nuclear power plants in China. The Ulba-FA plant has allowed Kazatomprom to diversify its production, expanding its product line and producing advanced, export-oriented uranium products with a high added value. With a production capacity of 200 tons of uranium in the form of fuel assemblies per year, the Ulba-FA plant has a guaranteed sales market for the next 20 years, Kazatomprom said. The launch of this innovative production has allowed Kazakhstan to enter the limited circle of countries which produce and supply nuclear fuel for nuclear power plants.
