ENERHODAR (Ukraine), October 20 (RIA Novosti) -- Russian state-controlled nuclear fuel supplier TVEL plans to control 25% of the world's nuclear fuel market by 2030, the company's vice president said on Tuesday.
The company, which currently controls 17% of the world's market of fuel for nuclear power plants, previously said it intended to gain a 30% share.
Pyotr Lavrenyuk said the adjustment was due to "a change in global nuclear power plant construction dynamics."
In 2008, there were 436 reactors in the world, with a total installed capacity of 370 GW. By 2030, their number is expected to increase to 660.
TVEL supplies fuel to 76 power generating reactors and 30 research reactors worldwide.
