 Russia to open int’l tenders for Jordan nuclear power project

Russia’s state-owned nuclear energy company said international tenders will be announced for two new nuclear reactors in Jordan.
 
Russia’s Rosatom said the company plans to open up tenders for consulting services, market studies and grid studies sometime in April, according to The National. Bids are already taking place for the pre-investment phase of the two-unit, 2,000-MW nuclear power project. South Korea’s KEPCO was previously awarded the work for the site and environmental impact assessments at the end of 2014, the article said.
 
The Jordan Atomic Energy Commission and Rosatom recently signed an agreement to build the nuclear reactors for $10 billion. The plant is expected to cover Jordan’s increasing electricity demand and could allow the country to export electricity to Syria and Iraq. The first reactor is set to come online by 2021, with the second to follow four years later.
