Shipment of Fuel Rods for Paks Nuclear Plant Arrives
Another shipment of fuel rods from Russia for the Paks nuclear power plant has arrived in Hungary, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Péter Szijjártó said in a post on Facebook on Saturday, according to a report by state news wire MTI.
The delivery, the third one this year, was brought by ship across the Black Sea, then by train through Bulgaria and Romania, in compliance with the strictest safety regulations, Szijjártó said.
"With regard to the operation of the Paks nuclear power plant, we have fuel rods at our disposal on site for a good long time," he added.
He said delivery of fuel rods would continue according to the contract, adding that cooperation with Hungary's Russian partners was "excellent" in terms of the quality of the fuel rods and scheduling of deliveries.
He noted that the Paks nuclear power plant accounts for about half of the electricity generated in Hungary.
