Turkish firms to construct Akkuyu Nuclear Power Plant via Port Turkey

Akkuyu is the first planned NPP that consists of four reactors and which will be built by Russia in the Mediterranean coast of Turkey.

Russia and Turkey will work together on the construction of the US$20 billion Akkuyu power plant (NPP), Russian engineering company Atomstroyexport said.

The NPP, which is being built by Russian state company Rosatom, will be fully operational by 2023.

Anatoliy Andiyanov, Deputy Production Manager of Atomstroyexport, confirmed that the company is currently working with two Turkish companies in Akkuyu NPP’s construction zone.


Turkey also plans to build a second nuclear plant in the port city of Sinop on the Black Sea coast with a Franco-Japanese consortium.

Turkey heavily relies on foreign energy resources, such as natural gas and oil, which drives almost half of all the electricity production in Turkey and costs up to US$60 billion a year.
