Turkey’s First Nuclear Power Plant Project Delayed
From Penn Energy
The proposed $20 billion Mersin Akkuyu nuclear power plant project in southern Turkey is likely to be delayed by at least a year, Reuters reported. The 4,800 megawatt facility, to be built by Russian company Rosatom, is behind schedule and not likely to meet its projected 2019 start date.
“Production in 2019 is not possible. 2020 is more likely,” a source close to the project told Reuters.
Construction on the nuclear project was scheduled to start in mid-2015, but it is now anticipated that date will be pushed back as the project is still lacking a construction license.
