KALININGRAD, October 5. /TASS/. Rescheduling of the Baltic nuclear power plant construction in the Kaliningrad region is caused mainly by the “need to find the buyer for the NPP-generated electricity,” Russian Energy Minister Aleksandr Novak said in Kaliningrad on Saturday. This work is underway, he added.
“Nobody says now that this plant will not be built,” he said. “In our view, the prospects for the plant’s construction are high.”
The Baltic NPP that will have two power units is planned to be built 120 kilometres from Kaliningrad and 60 kilometres from the coast of the Curonian Lagoon. The NPP projects envisages the construction of two VVER power units with the capacity at least 1170 MW each. The estimated cost of the project is more than 194 billion roubles in prices of the first quarter of 2009. The ceremonial laying of the first stone in the future NPP foundation was held on February 25, 2010. The first power unit was initially planned to be commissioned in 2016 and the second - in 2018.
