Russia has become a world leader in nuclear technology, after considerable investment in research and development, experts say.
According to research by the World Nuclear Association released in March 2015, Russia is “moving steadily forward with plans for much expanded role of nuclear energy, including development of new reactor technology.”
“The efficiency of nuclear generation in Russia has increased dramatically since the mid-1990s. Over 20nuclear power reactors are confirmed or planned for export construction,” the association says.
” Russia is a world leader in fast neutron reactor technology, and exports ofnuclear goods and services are a major Russian policy and economic objective,” the association says.
With over $100 billion worth of international nuclear projects underway, Russian technology is preferred for its cheaper price, safety and willingness to share knowledge.
Rosatom, Russia’s state-owned nuclear company, has 29 nuclear projects around the world and aims to increase the number to 34 through agreements currently being negotiated. The latest deal was struck with Jordan to build its first nuclear plant, worth $10 billion, on March 24.
