ST. PETERSBURG, June 20 (Itar-Tass) - Over the two years since Japan’s Fukushima nuclear power plant disaster the amount of Rosatom’s foreign contracts have been up 50 percent, the head of Russia’s nuclear power corporation, Sergei Kiriyenko, said at the panel meeting Elimination of Obstructions to the Stability of Supplies in the Energy Sector at the St. Petersburg economic forum on Thursday.
He drew attention to the available numerous forecasts to the effect the nuclear power industry’s development rates will fall, programs will be curtailed, the way they were curtailed in Germany or suspended in Japan.”
“Two years have passed. What can be said about Rosatom’s foreign contracts? Over the two years since Fukushima they showed 50-percent growth. Before it stood at slightly over 40 billion dollars, now it is 66.5 billion dollars,” Kiriyenko said.
The International Atomic Energy Agency forecasts that 460 gigawatts of nuclear power generating capacities will be commissioned around the world by 2020.
