CAIRO, February 10. /TASS/. Russia’s state-owned nuclear power corporation Rosatom is ready to build four nuclear power plant units in north Egypt, using new post-Fukushima technology, Rosatom head Sergey Kiriyenko said on Tuesday.
Principal agreements on the NPP construction have been reached and it is now necessary to prepare inter-governmental agreements and contracts until the end of the year, Kiriyenko said.
Russia and Egypt signed earlier on Tuesday a number of bilateral documents. In particular, Kiriyenko and Egyptian Minister of Electricity and Renewable Energy Mohamed Shaker signed an agreement on developing a project to build a nuclear power plant in north Egypt.
"The project relates to the construction of four 1,200 MW nuclear power plant units using Russian technology in north Egypt, on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea, in the area which the Egyptian government intends to develop intensively," the Rosatom head said.
During the NPP construction, Rosatom will use the latest Russian technologies, which envisage building nuclear power plant units of the so-called post-Fukushima type with absolutely reliable safety levels, the Rosatom head said.
