"I note that, thanks to the agreements reached with TVEL, a fuel reserve has been formed, which we can use in case of force majeure, for example, caused by transportation of fuel across adjacent borders in conditions of political instability."

Moreover, since 1995 there have been no luchaya depressurization TVEL-s "- said General Director of the station. He also highly appreciated the quality and reliability of Russian fuel.  "There have never been any complaints about fuel of TVEL brand, neither our experts, nor foreign experts who visited the Armenian nuclear power plant with inspections, but in the future we plan to move the nuclear power plant to a 15-month fuel cycle, but this will not happen before the modernization is completed our nuclear power plant, "Movses Vardanyan said.  "TVEL" JSC was established on September 12, 1996 in accordance with the Decree of the President of the Russian Federation, is a part of the State Corporation "Rosatom".
