Oleg Titov made a presentation at the session of the Section «Russian-design NPP Construction – international supply chain» about the status of Akkuyu NPP and possibilities for foreign companies to play the role of equipment suppliers. When describing various aspects of the first Turkish nuclear power plant construction project, the reporter underlined importance of the construction of the first NPP for the Republic of Turkey. The Head of the Representative Office noted that the total project cost amounted to US$ 20 bln., and Turkish companies involved in this process could count on the share of US$7-8 bln. Oleg Titov stressed that the project was developing in accordance with the plan and urged the forum participants to pay attention to the fact that the Turkish Ministry of Environment and Urbanization had confirmed the compliance of the Environmental Impact Assessment Report (EIA) for Akkuyu NPP with the Special format. The next step under the plan is the EIA Report review by a special assessment commission, consisting of the representatives of State agencies, universities, public and other organizations. The procedure of obtaining the license for the nuclear power plant construction will follow the EIA approval.

 

Titov brought to notice of the audience that all activities of the company under the Akkuyu NPP Project were being performed in cooperation and collaboration with the Turkish State bodies. Recently the Akkuyu NPP construction site has received the status of a special protection zone. «Such a status means that the State institutions give special attention to and are highly interested in implementation of the joint Russian-Turkish project» - noted the report.

 

Several representatives of Czech companies asked Titov about a possibility to participate in equipment delivery for Akkuyu NPP. The Head of the Representative Office noted that all procurements were open and transparent. «Any company meeting the customer’s requirements and having relevant licenses can file an application for participation in procurement procedures. In the modern free market context we are unable to select suppliers, prioritizing specific companies. An organization offering quality products on beneficial terms and at fair prices can win the procurement process» - said Oleg Titov.
