Argentina has two nuclear reactors in operation that make up for almost one-tenth of its overall energy needs. Electricity consumption in Argentina has grown strongly. Per capita consumption was just over 2000 kWh/yr in 2002 and rose to over 2600 kWh/yr in 2007. In 2008, nuclear power provided over 6.8 billion kWh of electricity – about 6.2% of total electricity generation. In August 2006, the government announced a US$ 3.5 billion strategic plan for the country's nuclear power sector. This involved completing Atucha 2 and extending the operating lifetimes of Atucha 1 and Embalse. The life of the Embalse CANDU-6 type plant will be extended by 25-30 years in partnership with Candu Energy Inc. and its power will also be increased by about 35 MWe. Contracts for $440 million were signed in August 2011, the main work will commence in November 2013, and the reactor is due to be offline for about 20 months then, though the whole project will take five years. Total cost is put at $1.37 billion.

The goal is for nuclear power to be part of an expansion in generating capacity to meet rising demand. Meanwhile, a feasibility study on a fourth reactor was undertaken, to start construction after 2010, and US$ 2 billion was projected for this. In July 2007, NASA signed an agreement with AECL to establish contract and project terms for construction of a 740 MWe gross Enhanced CANDU 6 reactor, as well as completing Atucha 2. A further 740 MWe Enhanced CANDU 6 unit was proposed, possibly as Embalse 2. However, the government has been talking also with reactor vendors from France, Russia, Japan, South Korea, China and the USA, indicating that its fourth and fifth reactors are more likely to be LWR type, with Atucha the most likely location. Russia is planning to offer two AES-2006 units.

In this industry scenario, Taiyou Research analyzes the Nuclear Power Market in Argentina.

Divided into five chapters, this in-depth research offering from Taiyou Research is a complete analysis of the nuclear power market in Argentina.

The report deals with an overview of the global power market which is consistently rising due to rapid industrialization resulting in ever increasing demand for power. 66% of global power market is dominated by thermal power sources viz. coal and petroleum but stringent emission norms and depletion of sources is driving global attention towards renewable technology and nuclear power with a 7.5% market share is going to play a major role in future.

In spite of the Chernobyl disaster and the more recent Fukushima setback, the global installed nuclear capacity is likely to increase at a CAGR of nearly 4% and nuclear generation at a CAGR of 3.9% during 2011-2020. In comparison to other technologies the nuclear power has a nominal impact on greenhouse gas emission.
