Belarus, Rosatom to liaise across a number of areas
Director of Rosatom’s country office in Belarus Stanislav Levitsky spoke about this on the sidelines of the 28th Belarusian Energy and Environmental Forum Energy Expo
According to him, a comprehensive programme for the development of co-operation across a range of areas has been prepared by the Belarusian side, particularly, on additive technologies, nuclear medicine, digitalisation, etc.
“The programme will soon be approved, and then its implementation will begin from the end of this year until the 2030s. The programme envisages the introduction of innovative solutions and investment activity on the territory of Belarus, as well as the creation of joint ventures. We’re confident that such a strategic document will lay a solid foundation forinteraction,” said Stanislav Levitsky.
He recalled that Rosatom is already developing work in over 90 areas, including the establishment of the Republican Centre for Additive Technologies of Public Access.
“We initiated sending a corresponding appeal to the leadership of Belarus,” he noted. “A roadmap has already been signed, which implies the creation of a joint innovation centre for 3D printing of metals in Belarus by late 2023. 3D printing enables us to quickly replace components under current restrictions,” he added.
As far as nuclear medicine is concerned, according to Stanislav Levitsky, a programme is beginning to create an innovative radiopharmaceutical medicine with the involvement of one of the Belarusian organisations in conducting tests and developing industrial manufacturing technologies.
Another promising direction is electric transport, with the Atom electric car project being currently underway. Director of Rosatom’s country office in Belarus said that it’s planned to discuss in the near future the issue of Belarus joining this project in the format of certain organisations, ministries and departments.
