The Minister of Energy, Sebastian Burduja, announces that Romania will produce medical isotopes at the Cernavodă Power Plant, “hope for the treatment of cancer”, and can restart heavy water production at Drobeta-Turnu Severin, after Nuclearelectrica signed a memorandum with Ontario Power Generation ( OPG).
“Excellent day at the OECD and equally good news! Romania will produce medical isotopes at the Cernavodă Power Plant, hope for cancer treatment. And he can restart the production of heavy water at Drobeta-Turnu Severin. Both with Canadian support: today Nuclearelectrica signed a memorandum with Ontario Power Generation (OPG) in this regard, a strategic step for restoring the Romanian integrated nuclear cycle. This step, which I had in mind during the official visit to Ottawa last week, is becoming a reality today”, said Sebastian Burduja, Thursday evening, in a post on Facebook.
He mentioned that he had bilateral meetings at the OECD, on the sidelines of the event dedicated to the nuclear sector, with the counterpart ministers from France, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland, Bulgaria, Ukraine, with the deputy secretary of energy from the US, as well as with the director general of the Agency for OECD Nuclear Energy, according to News.ro.
“Subjects addressed: the Romanian civil nuclear program, including small modular reactors, an example for the entire region; human resource training in the nuclear field; promoting nuclear technologies and accessing financing for large projects. Romania is respected in the club of nuclear states. We will continue to strive to give Europe and the whole world the highest standard of professionalism”, concluded Burduja.
