    Russia’s TVEL fuel company and a US nuclear operator signed a first contract on the pilot production of Russian fuel, TVEL’s parent company, the Rosatom national nuclear corporation, said Tuesday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – TVEL confirmed signing a licensing, marketing and fuel fabrication for Pressurized Water Reactors (PWRs) in the United States with US Global Nuclear Fuel-Americas (GNF-A, subsidiary of GE-Hitachi) last May.
