A new exhibit a fragment of graphite stack from worlds first nuclear reactor Chicago Pile-1, built in 1942 under supervision of Enrico Fermi at Chicago University, USA, was given to History Museum of JSC Siberian Group of Chemical Enterprises (JSC SGChE) (integrated into TVEL Fuel Company of Rosatom). On September 11, 2013 the exhibit was solemnly handed by William Wanderer, representative of U.S. Department of Energy, during final visit of American observers under the Megatons to Megawatts Program.

This exhibit, being a part of our common nuclear legacy, is given to Sergey Tochilin, Director General, and on the whole to Siberian Group of Chemical Enterprises in acknowledgment of your contribution of technical expertise and obsessive adherence to successful implementation of the Megatons to Megawatts Program. On the occasion of the final special visit of American observers, held under the said Program, a covering letter, signed by William R. Wanderer, Head of the U.S. delegation, says.

It should be noted that the final visit of American observers under the Megatons to Megawatts Program was held at JSC SGChE on September 09-12, 2013. Representatives of U.S. Department of Energy and National Laboratories performed scheduled monitoring of high-enriched uranium conversion into low-enriched uranium at approved inspection points of the isotope separation plant, sublimation complex and chemical and metallurgical plant of JSC SGChE.

Year 2013 saw the final stage of implementation of a 20-year Russian-American program, known as the Megatons to Megawatts Program.

Joint-Stock Company Siberian Group of Chemical Enterprises (Seversk) incorporates five plants for nuclear materials handling and a Central Heating and Power Plant. One of its main activities is to meet needs of nuclear power plants in uranium for nuclear fuel and produce thermal and electric power. The Company is integrated into TVEL Fuel Company of Rosatom State Corporation.

TVEL Fuel Company of Rosatom is included into a vertically integrated structure of Russian nuclear energy sector. TVEL FC combines production and research assets in the field of nuclear fuel fabrication, separation-sublimation complex, as well as manufacturing of gas centrifuges and equipment for them. TVEL Fuel Company was established in order to provide the best management structure of nuclear fuel cycle enterprises, improve effectiveness of their production and guarantee their competitiveness on global market.
