The State Atomic Energy Corporation ROSATOM

The State Atomic Energy Corporation ROSATOM is one of the global technological leaders. It is one of the largest companies of the Russian Federation and one of the largest taxpayers of the country. It brings together nuclear power and power engineering assets, as well as NPP design and construction. ROSATOM is the largest electricity generating company in Russia, producing 202.868 bln kWh of electricity in 2017 (196.366 bln kWh in 2016), or 18.9% of the country's total generation of electricity. ROSATOM holds the first place for the largest portfolio of foreign construction projects (33 NPP Units in 12 countries). ROSATOM produces annually approximately 3,000 tons of uranium production abroad excluded. Raw materials of Russian and foreign deposits (particularly in Kazakhstan) will be enough to supply both domestic and international projects of Rosatom for the next hundred years. ROSATOM with its 1/3 world market share takes the lead in global uranium enrichment services and covers 17.7% of the global nuclear fuel market. ROSATOM also manufactures equipment and produces isotopes for nuclear medicine, carries out research and material studies. It also produces supercomputers and software as well as different nuclear and non-nuclear innovative products. ROSATOM's strategy is to develop clean energy projects, including wind energy. ROSATOM brings together over 300 enterprises and organizations, including the world's only nuclear icebreaker fleet. ROSATOM is tasked with implementing the uniform state policy on the uses of atomic energy as well as fulfilling the Russian Federation's international obligations on the peaceful uses of atomic energy.
