Rosatom plans nuclear power plant construction in vietnam

Russia state-owned Rosatom signed a general framework agreement with Electricity of Vietnam (EVN) for construction of a unit at the planned Ninh Thuan nuclear power plant.

Rosatom subsidiary Atomproekt will supply its version of the 1,200-MW AES-2006 reactor for at least the first two units, according to the World Nuclear Association. The units are set to be built as a turnkey project in the 2017-2023 timeframe. Russia’s Ministry of finance will finance at least 85 percent of the project, supply nuclear fuel and take back the used fuel, the article said.

Vietnam is planning three nuclear projects: Phase I and II of the Ninh Thuan plant and another unnamed power plant in a central area, according to the article. The country’s electricity use is expected to triple in 15 years.
