SN Nuclearelectrica SA plant chalks up a record

Romania – for 2003, SN Nuclearelectrica SA’s nuclear fuel manufacturing plant in Pitesti, FCN-Pitesti, has achieved a quality assurance coup by manufacturing 5.021 defect-free nuclear fuel bundles. The bundles, dedicated to the operation of Cernavoda NPP Unit 1, were established as having been fault-free during the operation of this unit. This performance has enabled the plant to chalk up a performance record – with no defects having been reported over a 30-month period.

Thanks to a $4-million investment – funded entirely by SN Nuclearelectrica – work has been proceeding with equipping the Pitesti plant to double its nuclear fuel manufacturing. This has gone ahead while the plant has maintained normal operation levels.

The plant capacity upgrade is scheduled for completion during the first half of this year.
