The delivery of nuclear fuel is a significant one which marks the moment of officially becoming a nuclear power plant and also of Turkey being categorised as a country with nuclear energy capacity.
According to Turkey's energy ministry "the nuclear fuel, consisting of uranium pellets, was brought by air the night before from Russia, accompanied by high security measures ... the fuel was then loaded on three trucks and transported to the Akkuyu NPP site by land. The uranium pellets, which are transported in protective containers and whose radiation measurements are made, do not pose any security risk".
Hundreds of workers, officials and industry figures gathered in person for the event, with the two presidents addressing them via video link.
📝 Dutch government allocates funding for nuclear programme
In its draft Climate Fund for 2024, the Dutch government has budgeted funds totalling EUR320 million (USD352 million) for the development of #nuclearenergy. The funds will be used for the preparation of the operational extension of the existing Borssele nuclear power plant, the construction of two new large reactors, the development of small modular reactors (SMRs) and for nuclear skills development in the Netherlands.

In December 2021, the Netherlands' new coalition government placed nuclear power at the heart of its climate and energy policy. Based on preliminary plans, two new reactors will be completed around 2035 and each will have a capacity of 1000-1650 MWe. The two reactors would provide 9-13% of the Netherlands' electricity production in 2035. The cabinet announced in December 2022 that it currently sees Borssele as the most suitable location for the construction of the new reactors.
📝 French regulator approves EDF schedule for weld checks
France's #nuclear safety regulator, the Autorité de Sûreté Nucléaire (ASN), has approved EDF's revised programme to rectify stress corrosion issues at its French nuclear power plants. Under EDF's schedule, all welds identified as a priority will be checked within the next year.

In December 2021, maintenance checks on the primary circuit of Civaux 1 revealed corrosion near the welds on pipes of the safety injection system. Checks were then carried out on the same equipment at unit 2, revealing similar defects. EDF decided to replace the affected parts, requiring an extended shutdown of the plant, and also take its two other N4 units at Chooz B offline to carry out similar checks.
In mid-January 2022, EDF announced that similar faults on the safety injection system pipe welds to those discovered at Civaux 1 had been found at Civaux 2 and Chooz B2. In addition, the ten-year in-service inspection at Penly 1 - one of twelve 1300 MWe-class units of the P4 series - also revealed stress corrosion. The discovery of cracking led to the need to carry out checks across much of its French fleet.
