US, French companies to supply fuel to Czech nuclear plant


PRAGUE (AP) — The Czech Republic has signed deals with Westinghouse Electric Co. and France’s Framatome to deliver fuel supplies for a nuclear power plant, reducing the country’s dependence on Russia. The Czech state-controlled power company CEZ says Pennsylvania-based Westinghouse and Framatome will contribute to the country’s energy security by supplying the Temelin nuclear fuel for more than 10 years, starting in 2024. The deal is worth several billion Czech crowns (hundreds of millions of dollars). The plant’s current supplier is Russia’s TVEL, part of Russian energy giant Rosatom. CEZ says it has enough fuel for the plant for about two years.
