ASTANA, June 7 (Itar-Tass) — Kazakhstan is to decide what nuclear power station it needs and choose a location for it before the end of 2012. After that Russian experts will get down to implementing this project, Sergei Kiriyenko, the Rosatom chief, told journalists on Thursday.
“We are waiting for an answer on two questions: the station’s power rating capacity and where it’s going to be located. That will determine what project we are going to offer,” Kiriyenko went o to say. He added that President Nursultan Nazarbayev had issued an order to step up the analysis at Thursday’s talks.
Kiriyenko also said that the Rosatom State Corporation for Nuclear Energy was ready to build one power unit at the Kozlodiu nuclear power plant in Bulgaria instead of two at the nuclear power station in Belene.
“The customer is always right. Any whim for your money,” Rosatom’s Chief Sergei Kiriyenko told Itar-Tass on Thursday.
He said the work would start in three or four years at best. Russian companies are getting ready to receive a new order. At the moment, they are trying to settle existing problems, including payment for the work that has been finished.
Kiriyenko also said that Rosatom could join the Horizon project on the construction of nuclear power plants in Britain.
“We are seriously studying this opportunity. It’s a very interesting project,” Kiriyenko emphasized.
