Belarusian participation in Belarusian nuclear station project to stay high

Written by

While implementing the project to build the Belarusian nuclear power plant, the Russian state corporation Rosatom tightly cooperates with Belarusian partners. Rosatom will try to continue keeping Belarusian participation in the project as high as possible, BelTA learned from Kirill Komarov, Deputy Director General for Development and International Business of Rosatom, during AtomExpo 2014 in Moscow on 10 June.

“The Belarusian nuclear power plant is being built in tight cooperation with Belarus. We choose every contractor via a tender and always take into account the opinion of the Belarusian customer. About 80% of the ongoing construction operations are fulfilled by Belarusian construction companies. It is a very high figure for a country that is building its first nuclear power plant. When equipment deliveries start, naturally the percentage will drop. But Rosatom carefully studies information regarding capabilities of Belarusian companies in order to let them take part in the project. We will try to make the share of Belarusian companies as large as possible,” stressed Kirill Komarov.

In his opinion, the nuclear power plant in Ostrovets is being built truly successfully.

Speaking about prospects of nuclear energy construction industry in the region on the whole, Kirill Komarov said that there is space for at least several nuclear power plants. “The region needs electricity, including electricity generated by nuclear power plants. The key thing to keep in mind is who is ready to build a nuclear power plant and who only declares readiness on paper. We have slightly suspended construction work at the Baltic nuclear power plant construction site but we still intend to build it and continue making equipment for it. As far as nuclear power plants in Poland and Lithuania are concerned, they are still nothing but a declaration. We have seen nothing real in this regard yet,” noted the executive.

The 6th international forum AtomExpo 2014 is scheduled to take place in Moscow on 9-11 June. The Belarusian Telegraph Agency (BelTA) is an information partner of AtomExpo 2014.
