The first nuclear fuel has arrived onsite for the first commercial nuclear power station in Belarus, Russian state nuclear corporation Rosatom said.
According to Rosatom, the first batch of fuel arrived at the site of the Belarusian nuclear station on 6 May. The fuel assemblies are being prepared for unloading and quality control, Rosatom said.
Last week the Belarusian emergencies ministry Gosatomnadzor issued a permit for nuclear fuel to be imported for the Belarusian station, which is under construction near the town of Ostrovets, in the northwest of the country close to the border with Lithuania.
