MOSCOW, August 4. /TASS/. Russia’s nuclear power corporation Rosatom and the Bolivian Atomic Energy Agency (ABEN) have signed first commercial contracts on the project of construction of a center for nuclear research and technologies in Bolivia, Rosatom reported Thursday.
ABEN signed two contracts - with Rosatom’s engineering subsidiary Atomstroyexport on preliminary engineering surveys regarding the construction of the center, and with Rusatom Service on estimation of the state of Bolivia’s national nuclear infrastructure, the report said.
The cost of the contracts has not been unveiled.
As was reported earlier on March 6, 2016 Russia and Bolivia signed an intergovernmental agreement on cooperation in the area of peaceful use of nuclear energy and on cooperation in the construction of a nuclear research and technology center in the city of El Alto at an altitude of 4,100 meters above sea level. The plan is to equip the center with a test multipurpose gamma-ray unit on the basis of a research light water-cooled and moderated reactor with a capacity of up to 200 kilowatt, a cyclotron, an engineering unit and a laboratory unit. The project estimated at $300 mln aimed at assisting Bolivia on development of nuclear technologies to be used in the research sector, medicine, geology and agriculture, will be implemented jointly with Russia’s Rosatom and will be funded using the country’s own resources.
