MOSCOW, January 13. /TASS/. Russia’s state nuclear corporation Rosatom plans to retain its leading role in nuclear power plant construction worldwide at least in 2020s, company CEO Alexei Likhachev told the Rossiya-24 TV channel on Saturday.
"Several years ago, we assumed the leading role on the global nuclear power plant construction market," he said. "The market is moving, so our share on the market fluctuates between 68 and 72-72% I think we will be able to maintain it above 60% for quite a while, at least, this is how we see our goals for 2020s."
Rosatom’s portfolio includes nuclear reactor construction projects in 12 countries. Recently, it was revised to include a project to build two reactors in Uzbekistan.
In September, Likhachev said that Rosatom aims to maintain a portfolio of foreign orders for 10 years ahead in the amount of at least $130 bln per year.
