NOVOVORONEZH, Voronezh region May 29 (Itar-Tass) —— The Novovoronezh NPP “inspires confidence in safe operation of nuclear power plants,” Osman Ozturk, deputy director- general for monitoring impacts on environment at the Turkish Ministry for Environment and Urbanization, told reporters on Tuesday. He heads the delegation of Turkey’s ecological agencies to study the experience of the operation of Russian nuclear power plants.
The delegation chose to visit the Novovoronezh NPP as it offers a unique opportunity to see all the stages of the development of nuclear power with the use of VVER reactors that will be used at the Akkuyu nuclear power plant to be built on Turkey’s southern coast.
The power plant will be built under a Russian project envisaging the construction and putting into operation four power units with VVER-1200 reactors. The agreement on the construction of the plant was signed in May 2010. The design of the plant meets all contemporary requirements of the world nuclear community, registered in the security norms of the IAEA, the International Consultative Group for Nuclear Security and EUR requirements.
The visit to the Novovoronezh NPP “will be conducive to making a positive decision regarding environmental effects that is needed to begin the construction of the Akkuyu power plant,” Ozturk said.
During the visit the Turkish delegation plans to participate on May 30 in a round-table conference with experts on environmental protection and representatives of public organizations. Specialists of the Novovoronezh NPP will deliver reports on ecology and radiation security of the population of the city of Novovoronezh and on environmental protection measures.
