Promoting global development

The first nuclear power plant to be commissioned overseas in the Soviet era was Rheinsberg NPP launched in 1966 in the German Democratic Republic. Soviet specialists also built nuclear power plants in Bulgaria, Finland, Czechoslovakia and Hungary.
1966

NPP construction and operation contributes to economic and infrastructure development both in Russia and in foreign customer countries. As high-technology manufacturing enterprises are guaranteed long-term stable capacity utilization, companies in related industries receive orders, and new jobs are created for local communities, all this contributes to GDP through industry revenue and tax payments. NPP construction and operation provides employment for several thousand people, both at the plant itself and in the sphere of nuclear infrastructure.

ROSATOM is actively promoting Russian nuclear technologies for energy and non-energy applications both in countries that are beginning to develop nuclear power and in countries with a well-developed national nuclear power industry.

ROSATOM is working to strengthen the international legal framework for cooperation. By the end of 2019, intergovernmental agreements had been concluded with 74 countries, including agreements on the construction of nuclear facilities in 20 countries. 2019 saw the signing of 7 intergovernmental agreements and 23 major interdepartmental arrangements, including an agreement on the construction of a Russian-design Centre for Nuclear Science, Technology and Innovation in Serbia. In addition, ROSATOM is actively cooperating with international organizations, such as the International Atomic Energy Agency, the Nuclear Energy Agency of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development and the Commission of the CIS Member States on the Peaceful Use of Nuclear Energy.

ROSATOM's overseas business portfolio includes 36 power units in 12 countries, with 25 power units in 9 countries currently at the active stage of implementation.

As part of its NPP construction projects, ROSATOM concludes long-term contracts for the supply of nuclear fuel throughout the NPP life cycle. As a responsible company committed to sustainable use of resources, ROSATOM is developing recycling technologies, which enable it to reuse valuable materials in the nuclear fuel cycle. ROSATOM has references for the application of these technologies in Russia and offers them to its foreign partners.
