Turkey goes nuclear

24 April 2008

Turkey's Government has announced plans to start construction of three nuclear power plants in January 2007. The three plants will use two different types of reactors to generate electricity - Candu (Canada Deuterium Uranium) and PWR (Pressurised Water Reactor). At least one plant will be constructed on the Black Sea coast at Sinop.

Construction costs are estimated at US$ 7 to 8 billion. Electricity production is expected to start in 2012 and should total 5000 MW by 2014, according to energy minister Hilmi Guler.
