Turkey’s Parliament ratified an international treaty to establish a nuclear power plant in the northern province of Sinop. While this became Turkey’s second plan for a nuclear power plant, the ratification of the treaty yesterday coincided with the power outage across the country.

During his trip to Slovakia yesterday, President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan also mentioned of a third project.

“With the two projects in the north [Sinop] and south [Akkuyu], Turkey will have a nuclear capacity of 9500 MW. And maybe a third one. We need to take the necessary steps as Turkey’s need for energy is rising every day,” he said.

In the disaster, 31 people were killed and more than 200 thousand residents who lived within a 30 kilometer (km) radius of the Chernobyl blast site were evacuated.
