    Russia’s top exporter of primary stage nuclear material has completed a pilot shipment to Germany and Sweden via its northern Ust-Luga seaport.

    Techsnabexport performed the shipment jointly with its Isotope sister company as part of a project to build a transport and logistics hub in the Leningrad region for the export of nuclear material.

    Until now such export by sea was primarily done via the St. Petersburg seaport.

    In January, Russia started exporting nuclear material to the Asia-Pacific region also through its Vostochny seaport in the Far Eastern Primorye region.

    Теchsnabexport (Tenex) supplies about a third of foreign-made nuclear reactors’ need for enriched uranium. It sells its product to over 30 companies in 16 countries.
