“NPP "Аkkuyu" in Turkey will be constructed in the least earthquake generating area”, Sergey Boyarkin, Director of State Corporation “Rosatom” programs has declared.
" At present time we are specifying initial seismic of this area and selecting the zone with the minimum seismic hazard. Just there we assume to start the NPP construction", he said to journalists on Tuesday.
Additionally he has explained that in the course of construction additional protective measures against earthquakes will be taken.
"Certainly, we shall provide the plant with the additional system for maintenance of its stability. The Armenian NPP, designing and construction of which we were carrying out, has proved safety of our estimations and systems ", - S.Boyarkin added.
Previously President of the Russian Federation, Dmitry Medvedev, had declared that Nuclear Power Plant "Аkkuyu” in Turkey would be capable to sustain the most destructive earthquake, and its design did not demand making any adjustments from the safety point of view. "The project, which will be implemented in “Аkkuyu”, basically differs from the plants which were operating in Japan, both in its age, and its level of protection. There are other protection principles there. Therefore, even in connection with the events occurred in Japan, there is no and it should not be any radical revision of security measures, as they are quite sufficient anyway", D. Medvedev said on March, 16th at the press conference in Moscow after the negotiations with Prime Minister of Turkey, Recep Erdogan.
NPP "Аkkuyu" will consist of four power units with the power of 1200 MW each. The main volume of financing of the Nuclear Power Plant construction will be undertaken by the Russian party (previously the preliminary estimation of investments at the level of $20 billion had been declared). The design company will be then the NPP owner and will operate it. The Turkish government, in its turn, for providing of the recoupment of the project, guarantees purchase of the certain volume of the electric power to be generated in the plant, for the period of 15 years from the moment of the power unit start-up, at the fixed price.
