Russia in line to build four nuclear power plants in Jordan

Russia has offered Jordan a deal under which it will construct four nuclear power reactors.

The proposal is separate to the tender to supply the country’s first power reactor, the winner of which is set to be selected by the end of March, reports World Nuclear News.

Rosatom’s reactor export subsidiary AtomStroyExport (ASE) approached the Jordan Atomic Energy Commission (JAEC) in January with a proposal to build four 1200 MW VVER units, similar to the agreement it reached with Turkey, according to a Jordan Times report reproduced by Rosatom.

According to the report, if all four units are built, 4000 MW of generating capacity would be added to the grid, more than doubling Jordan’s current generating capacity. This would transform the country from an energy importer to an energy exporter.
