Rosatom plans to broaden nuclear power plants construction overseas

Russiaís Rosatom intends to make contracts for construction of new nuclear power plants (NPP) in coming future, including Uzbekistan and Saudi Arabia. Rosatom currently holds 67% of nuclear power plants construction market, Chief Executive Officer of the Russian nuclear corporation Alexei Likhachev said.

The portfolio of orders is over $133 bln at present, the top manager said. "We have 35 power units at present as contracts and intergovernmental agreements. This is equal to 67% of the international [NPP] construction market," Likhachev noted.

"An agreement on construction of two major units in Uzbekistan is at the closing stage," the top manager said. "We hope that the whole range of other countries will become our partners and, in the popular phrase, newcomers in the nuclear energy," he added.

Likhachev said he returned on Monday from Saudi Arabia, where talks had been held. "We see high potential of cooperating with this country not merely in the sphere of our traditional offers of large units but also medium-and small-capacity reactors," the top manager added.
