Turkish President Discusses $80Bln Nuclear Power Deal
16 February 2009
President Dmitry Medvedev met with Turkish counterpart Abdullah Gul in Moscow on Friday to discuss energy cooperation, including talks for Russia to build and run a $20 billion nuclear plant in Turkey.
Turkey approved technical aspects of the bid and is reviewing a 15-year power supply contract, potentially worth $60 billion, Energy Minister Sergei Shmatko said Friday. Reactor builder Atomstroiexport is a partner with power trader Inter RAO and Park Teknik, Turkey's biggest private coal producer, in the bid.
The countries are "interested in developing ties in the sphere of electricity and nuclear energy," Medvedev told reporters after a meeting Gul.
Russia outpaced Germany as Turkey's top trade partner last year as business between the countries rose eightfold since 2002 to $34 billion. Prime Minister Vladimir Putin put the figure at $32 billion while meeting with Gul, Interfax reported.
Power demand in Turkey last year grew the most worldwide after China. Half of Turkey's power plants burn gas, of which 95 percent is imported, and the country is looking to decrease its dependence on the fuel.
Turkey's government is seeking to fix a price at which it will buy electricity from the country's first nuclear plant, and Atomstroiexport has reduced its initial offer on power sales, Shmatko said. The company asked for 15 cents per kilowatt hour this month, compared with the 21.16 cents it offered initially.
The plant will take 10 to 12 years to build and will operate four 1,200-megawatt reactors, said Shmatko, a former chief executive of Atomstroiexport.
Atomstroiexport and Inter RAO are units of state nuclear corporation Rosatom.
Turkey considers uranium enrichment for own nuclear power plants
15/01/2008 16:21 ANKARA, January 15 (RIA Novosti) - Turkey may consider building a uranium enrichment center as part of an ambitious plan to develop the country's nuclear potential, a national newspaper said on Tuesday.
Turkey is preparing to issue a public tender for the construction of its first nuclear power plant and plans to build at least two nuclear reactors by 2015.
"The initiative [to build a uranium enrichment center] is strategically important for the whole world and for Turkey's future," the Hurriyet newspaper said.
The issue may be on the agenda of a nuclear energy meeting in Istanbul on Friday. In addition to representatives from the International Atomic Energy Agency, top-level officials from the United States, Russia, France and the U.K. are expected to attend the meeting.
The development of its own nuclear power industry was one of the priorities outlined for the country's government in Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan's address to parliament following his election victory in July last year.
Turkey has been enjoying rapid economic growth for the past five years and is becoming increasingly energy hungry. Some analysts say that the country could soon face an energy shortfall if it continues to rely on traditional energy sources.
Turkey has limited fossil fuel reserves. According to various sources, it produces only 50,000 barrels of oil per day, but consumes over 700,000, while its coal reserves are of a poor quality.
Meanwhile, Turkey's interest in uranium enrichment may allay U.S. concerns over growing nuclear ambitions among Middle East countries, primarily Iran.
With Washington's blessing, Turkey, a traditional U.S. ally and a NATO member, might become one of the key suppliers of nuclear fuel for Muslim countries if they decide to build their own nuclear power plants.
"If Turkey, as a NATO member, becomes an important regional center for uranium enrichment, it would be beneficial not only for the U.S., but also for the countries in the region, because they would be able to buy fuel for their future nuclear reactors from Turkey," Hurriyet said.
