The first batch of nuclear fuel has been supplied by a subsidiary of Russia’s state nuclear corporation Rosatom for the China Experimental Fast Reactor (CEFR). According to a company statement, the fuel has been supplied under a contract between TVEL (a Rosatom subsidiary), the China Nuclear Energy Industry Corporation, and the China Institute of Atomic Energy. CEFR is used for research purposes, though it also operates within a 20MW power unit, supplying electricity to the grid. It is classified by the International Atomic Energy Agency as the only fast power reactor in the world outside of Russia.
