OBNINSK, June 26. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s nuclear power corporation Rosatom hopes an inter-governmental agreement will be signed with South Africa on building a nuclear power plant in that country by the end of this year. Rusatom Overseas CEO Dzhomart Aliyev told this a media conference dubbed ‘NPP: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow’ currently underway in the city of Obninsk (Kaluga Region, Russia).
Asked by reporters regarding the date when that might happen, Aliyev said he hoped it would take place by the end of this year.
Earlier, Rosatom chief Sergey Kiriyenko told journalists the corporation was prepared to resume talks over Russia’s participation in South Africa’s nuclear program after the presidential election.At the end of 2013, Rosatom came close to clinching a $50-billion deal the South African authorities for building eight 1.2-gigawatt reactors. Originally, the signing was scheduled for the middle of February this year.
Today, South Africa has only one nuclear power plant— Koeberg. Under the government’s energy industry development program designed until 2030, the share of NPPs in electricity generation should go up from 5% to 25%.
