The Ukrainian government puts extremely high demands to safety of the construction and running the storage of waste nuclear fuel, Holtec International CEO Kris Singh said after a meeting with Ukrainian Minister for Fuel and Energy Yuriy Boyko. As he noted, on the request of the Ukrainian government Holtec will construct special high technological facilities. According to him, Holtec is in posses of the technology of complicated construction, which will be conveyed to Ukraine, “Cabinet press office” informs.

"I'm glad that after the Chornobyl disaster the Ukrainian government is very exigent in nuclear matters and puts high demands to safety. Other countries do not put such drastic demands," Singh said. According to him, Holtec will involve best Ukrainian enterprises to co-participate in the project.

The preliminary cost of the contract, which envisages the construction nuclear waste storage, is USD 160 M., which 90% will go as investments. "Holtec will take those profits, which Ukraine will gain from saving as a result of no need in fuel supply, as compensation," Singh went on.
