Construction on Egypt’s first nuclear power plant is scheduled to start in mid-2016.
The first of four phases calls for two nuclear power plants with a capacity of 950 to 1,600 MW each, according to The Cairo Post. Russia, China and South Korea are in the running to win a tender for the first phase, though Russia and Egypt signed a memorandum of understanding in February to build a nuclear power plant.
According to the report, the Egyptian government allocated land to build a 55-kilometer-square plant, but construction has not proceeded since then.
