Russian Foreign Ministry: work on Akkuyu NPP project on track
Construction work under the Akkuyu nuclear power plant (NPP) project is completely in line with the schedule, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Alexander Grushko said.
"Everything is underway in full compliance with schedules; contracts are awarded to contractors and subcontractors. By and large, we are fairly satisfied with the progress on the peaceful nuclear energy topic with the Turkish authorities," TASS cited the diplomat as saying.
The Akkuyu NPP project is implemented on the basis of the intergovernmental agreement signed between the Russian Federation and the Republic of Turkey in May 2010. First concreting of the NPP’s first unit took place in April 2018. In total, four nuclear reactors are to be built.
