All Ukrainian nuclear power units can be fully provided with Westinghouse nuclear fuel, even if Russia refuses to supply TVEL fuel to Ukraine.

 Ukrainian Energy and Coal Industry Minister Ihor Nasalyk stated this on 112 Ukraine TV channel.

“If the Russian Federation refuses to supply TVEL [fuel], then we could be fully provided with Westinghouse products, including 440th units of Rivne NPP," he said.

Nasalyk also added that the Ukrainian united energy system is highly reliable and at present it can generate 84 million kW more than last year, which amounts to the capacity of 3.5 nuclear power units, the minister stressed.

"Even if 1-2 power units stop in a European country, then it is an emergency. And we have already covered the capacity of 3.5 nuclear power units," Nasalyk said.
