Kazakhstan to Take Final Decision on Joint NPP Construction with Russia till End of Year

Kazakhstan does not dismiss the plans of constructing a nuclear power plant on its territory in cooperation with Russia, the President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev said at the briefing on June 7 summing up the results of the negotiations with the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin.

“In the future I think we will work on the construction of the nuclear power plant with our Russian partners”, — said the President of Kazakhstan

For his part the head of Rosatom Sergei Kirienko explained to the journalists that “we are looking forward to the answer from Kazakhstan power engineers in the two issues: the first one – what capacity they would need, and the second one is the location of the power plant”. “This will entirely define what kind of project we will be able to offer. Our preliminary agreement with Kazatomprom is about the innovative reactor with the capacity of 300 MW VBR300” – he said.

According to the head of Kazatomprom Bladimir Shkolnik, Kazakhstan is going to make a decision as to when and which nuclear power plant is to be built.

“You can bet on it. The main reason, why the decision making is so slow is the issue of the analysis of energy demand in Kazakhstan in general”, — Shkolnik explained.

It should be reminded that in October 2011 the President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev announced that the republic is going to execute the construction project of a nuclear power plant on its territory. The head of the state pointed out then that Kazakhstan possesses a quarter of all the world’s deposits of uranium, it has a huge scientific potential and the nuclear power infrastructure.

The Russian and Kazakhstan experts have already developed a draft agreement on the NPP construction in the republic and the corresponding feasibility study. However, Kasakhstan still has not decided on the practicality of the NPP construction on its territory.
