Putin, Erdogan Participate In Groundbreaking Ceremony For Turkey’s Akkuyu Nuclear Power Plant (Video)

On March 10, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin participated in the groundbreaking ceremony for the third reactor unit of the Akkuyu Nuclear Power Plant (NPP) in southern Turkey.

During the ceremony, which was held online due to coronavirus prevention measures, President Erdogan revealed that the power plant, when operational, will generate 35 billion kilowatt-hours of electricity annually to meet around 10% of Turkey’s power consumption.

Turkey and Russia have been cooperating on the Akkuyu NPP since May 2010. Russia’s Rosatom State Nuclear Energy Corporation is the main contractor.

According to President Erdogan, the power plant was equipped with the most advanced security systems to ensure it complies with the International Atomic Energy Agency standards.

The Turkish President said that the decision to introduce nuclear power to the country’s national energy infrastructure is a strategic step for energy supply security.

Erdogan went on to praise cooperation between Turkey and Russia on the Akkuyu NPP project as well as on a number of broad regional issues.

“The close dialogue that we established with my esteemed friend (Putin) is playing a key role not only in bilateral relations but also in preserving regional peace and stability,” Erdogan said.

From his side, President Putin praised the efforts made by Russia and Turkey to continue the construction of the plant as planned despite the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Without exaggeration, will not only bring the bilateral cooperation in the energy sector to a qualitatively new level but also contribute to the further promotion of the multifaceted Russian-Turkish partnership, promote friendship and mutual understanding between the peoples of our countries,” Putin said.

When complete, the Akkuyu NPP will include four reactor units each capable of generating 1114 megawatt. The plant’s first unit is set to enter operations in 2023.

By “preserving regional peace and stability” turkish dirtbag talks about his headchopping Wahhabis, that are “preserved” in Idlib, attacking Lybia, invading NK, doing all this in Ne Syria, and grabbing and invading Northern Iraq.

farbat

when it comes to the invasion of iraq the turks can really consider all they send as dead and they should ask themselves how many losses they can accept because iraq will be a bloody mess for them and it will not be al qaeda assets but turkish terrorists themselves who will bite the dust

farbat

the issue is turkey has still a chance til this summer but i doubt that it will go easy for them afterwards since they will be burning all over the place because they are going to be willfully running further and further towards the fires

Berlin must be asking themselves why Russian supplied gas upsets Washington more than Russian assisted Turkish atoms?

Even a broken clock is right 2 times per day so yeah, I must agree with you here, Ukraine cost EU some billions. Before 2014 Putin was sending Yanukivich $15 billion per year, so it will cost anyone the same.

The UK Daily Telegraph today reported that Royal Dutch Shell had just imported its 1st ship load of ‘carbon neutral’ liquified gas into Britain.

The gas was purchased from Gazprom. :)
