Ukraine plans to cooperate with the French Electricite de France SA (EDF) in the construction of new nuclear power plants (NPPs) in the country. It was announced by the Deputy Head of the Presidential Office Rostislav Shurma following recent talks with the French delegation in Kyiv.


"We are talking about the construction of new units. Of course, these units will be independent of Russia both in terms of fuel and technology. We had talks about mobile nuclear reactors, there were talks about fuel storage technologies," he said on TV "Rada" (26 January 2022).

We have big plans for the development of nuclear energy both in the framework of the "green transition" and in the framework of expanding electricity consumption. We are currently working out a program of cooperation with EDF. Details will be announced later.

Rostislav Shurma, Deputy Head of the Presidential Office of Ukraine

EDF operates more than 70 nuclear reactors, including 58 in France, and is one of the world's largest nuclear power plant operators. In addition, EDF owns stakes in generating companies in many countries in Europe, the United States, Brazil, Chile, Mexico, China, India and Morocco.
