Istanbul, Turkey, 2013/01/21 - Among the countries that are under serious consideration to develop nuclear power, Turkey and MENA countries are increasing its lead the emerging countries - SZWgroup.com.
Up to now, there are more than 440 nuclear power plants in 31 countries, generating 14% of the world electricity. IAEA predicts that this proportion will at least up to 25% in 2030, with 90 new nuclear power plants entering service. Over 60 reactors are under construction in 13countires while about 160 reactors are planed and over 320 are proposed.
Among the countries that are under serious consideration to develop nuclear power, Turkey and MENA countries are increasing its lead the emerging countries.
Approximately $400 billion worth of nuclear projects have been planned in MENA region. Constructing the first reactor since 2009, UAE is also projected that nuclear energy will produce nearly a quarter of the nation electricity needs and a further 12 units will generate over $60 billion in new contracts over the next decade. Jordan plans for at least one 1000mw reactor by 2019. And Saudi Arabia is looking to build 16 reactors by 2030, with a budget of $100 billion. The remaining countries have near-term plans or a more long-term interest, as they closely follow the region activities definitely.
Turkey, one of the biggest emerging countries in the regional nuclear power industry, has contracted $20 billion project for the construction of a nuclear power plant in Akkuyu with Rosatom, and will establish another 19 nuclear units by 2023. Though Turkey has not confirmed the site of the third nuclear power plants yet, Energy Minister Taner Yıldız announced that France and the United States could bid to construct energy-hungry Turkey third nuclear power plant and so could the bidders who are not chosen for the second plant and other countries which have thus far not shown interest in the first two plants, which will no doubt make Turkey the biggest stage for global nuclear energy players in 2013.
