Akkuyu NPP construction begins in Turkey under limited license
Construction of the Akkuyu nuclear power plant under a limited license began in Turkey on Sunday, TASS reported from the site.
The ceremony was in Mersin. It featured Rosatom’s head Alexei Likhachev, and Turkey’s First Deputy Minister of Energy and Natural Resources Fatih Donmez.
The limited license is the first permission, which Rosatom received in October. Under it, the company will build the so-called non-nuclear facilities.
It was reported earlier that Rosatom expects to receive the full license for the NPP in the first quarter of 2018.
