#AceFinanceNews – BRITAIN – March 25 – Britain is reviewing an agreement it made with Russian state nuclear firm Rosatom on nuclear cooperation, in reaction to the crisis in Ukraine, according to the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC).
Britain last November signed an agreement with Rosatom to help the company prepare potentially to enter the UK market.
The DECC said it had put the agreement under consideration over the Crimea situation. “No decisions have been made on how this work will be taken forward,” Reuters quoted a DECC spokesperson as saying. Rosatom has not commented on the statement.
#AceFinanceNews – MOSCOW. March 21 (Interfax) – The Rosatom state corporation’s foreign portfolio of orders over a 10-year horizon will top $100 billion by year-end, Rosatom chief Sergei Kirienko said on Friday at an academic and research conference.
Kirienko already has contracts on 22 nuclear power blocks and is currently negotiating on 29 more.
Rosatom’s strategy to 2030 calls for investing $350 billion, the bulk of it to finance construction of nuclear power plants.
“We have set the goal of raising the portfolio of foreign orders for 10 years to over $100 billion by year-end,” Kirienko said.
