Today the agreement on direct cooperation is signed between Is southern - the Ukrainian nuclear power plant and Gronde's (Germany) nuclear power plant.
The first experience of the Ukrainian and German energy drinks in this area in 2008 is 17 years old. In due time for studying and a wide circulation of positive experience in the sphere of nuclear power the World association of operators of the nuclear power plant recommended to heads of foreign nuclear power plants to choose in CIS countries of partners for the enterprises.
