Russian nuclear regulators have approved a renewed operating licence for TVEL's JSC Electrochemical Plant (ECP) in Zelenogorsk.

The plant, one of four uranium enrichment plants operating in Russia, is now licensed until July 2023. The centrifuge enrichment plant is the focus of ROSATOM investment, aiming to increase its capacity from 8.7 to 12 million SWU per year by 2020. The site is also home to Russia's only uranium deconversion plant.
