Turkey nuclear power project granted preliminary license

Turkey’s Energy Market Regulatory Authority (EPDK) granted a 36-month preliminary license for a new nuclear power project.
The license grants the Akkuyu Nuclear Power Plant Co. permission to acquire necessary permission to begin investments for the Akkuyu nuclear project, Reuters said. If requirements of the preliminary license are met, the company would then be granted a full license.
Construction on the project is expected to begin in 2016. Rosatom will build four 1,200-MW units under an agreement signed in 2010.
