TVEL will supply HEU fuel to Poland

Rosatom reports that TVEL signed an agreement with the Atomic Energy Institute in Sverk, Poland, about supplying the Maria research reactor there with 36%-enriched HEU fuel. The fuel is expected to be delivered in the second half of 2008.

On August 9, 2006, Russia removed 40 kg of fresh HEU fuel (enrichment was reported to be in the range of 20-80%) from the site in Sverk.
