The Turkish subsidiary of Russia’s nuclear energy company Rusatom plans to launch its project to build the first nuclear power plant (NPP) in Turkey next year, Russian news agency Tass reported, citing a statement from the Rosatom State Nuclear Corporation.
Russia and Turkey signed an inter-governmental agreement in 2010 on cooperation in the construction and operation of Turkey’s first NPP. The $20-billion Akkuyu NPP project stipulates building four power units with VVER-1200 reactors and a total capacity of 4,800 MW in the southern Turkish province of Mersin. The plant is estimated to meet around 6-7 per cent of Turkey's electricity demand.
