CAIRO, July 31. /TASS/. Egypt and Russia have reached an agreement "on all points of the commercial contract on constructing a nuclear power plant in El Dabaa," Al-Yaum Al-Sabia news portal reported on Monday.
According to the portal, Egyptian Minister of Electricity and Energy Mohamed Shaker El-Markabi reported this to President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi.
The official representative of the head of the Arab Republic of Egypt Alya Yusef said that "the date of signing the contract will be determined right after it is approved by the Egyptian State Council".
On 19 November 2015 Russia and Egypt signed an inter-governmental agreement on constructing the first NPP in El Dabaa, consisting of four power units with 1,200 MW capacity each.
On 20 November last year Russia’s environmental watchdog Rostechnadzor and Egyptian Nuclear and Radiological Regulatory Authority (ENRRA) have signed a memorandum on cooperation in the sphere of regulating nuclear and radiation safety when using nuclear energy for peaceful purposes.
Russian President Vladimir Putin said during his visit to Cairo in February 2015 that bilateral cooperation with Egypt in the sphere of nuclear energy envisages "not just construction of an NPP, but we are talking about creating a whole new nuclear sphere in Egypt." "This is a comprehensive package of measures which includes constructing an NPP, training specialists, and developing science," Putin noted.
According to Russia’s Rosatom state atomic energy corporation’s head Sergey Kiriyenko, the most advanced Russian technologies will be used in construction, including those that envisage constructing units "of the so-called post-Fukushima type with an absolutely reliable level of security.".
