VIENNA, September 27. /TASS/. Russia and Jordan have signed a memorandum of understanding on educating and training nuclear industry staff and personnel in related fields, a TASS correspondent, present at the signing ceremony, reports. The event took place on the sidelines of the 60th session of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) General Conference.
The memorandum was signed by Russia’s Rosatom State Atomic Energy Corporation CEO Sergey Kiriyenko and Jordan’s Atomic Energy Commission Chief Khaled Toukan.
In November 2013, Rosatom won a tender to construct a nuclear power plant in Jordan, breezing past the Japanese-French consortium of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries and Areva. In September 2015, Moscow and Amman signed a pre-investment agreement on this project.
The nuclear power plant is going to contain two power units with a capacity of 1000 MW each.
The construction of the nuclear power plant will not only enable Jordan to completely fulfill the country’s electricity demand but also provide it with an opportunity to start exporting electricity to other countries - Syria and Iraq in particular. The construction cost of the two units of the nuclear power plant is estimated at ten billion dollars.
In autumn 2015, Jordan’s Atomic Energy Commission head Khaled Toukan said that some Chinese banks could participate in financing the nuclear power plant project, providing 50% of the funding, in return for 30% of shares.
