    June 9, 2022 - Trend News Agency

     

      BAKU, Azerbaijan, June 9. Kazakhstan has identified a place to build a nuclear power plant, Kazakhstan’s President Kassym Jomart Tokayev said, Trend reports citing Kazakh media.

      Tokayev however did not disclose the area for the future construction.

      "Kazakhstan has a number of competitive advantages for the development of nuclear energy. The country ranks first in the world in the production of natural uranium, has its own production of nuclear fuel and has the ability to enrich uranium," he said.

      In May, Kazakhstan’s Energy Minister Bulat Aqchulaqov said that the nuclear power plant may be constructed near the Balkhash lake in Kazakhstan.

      "This territory has been studied for a long time, since Soviet times. There is still no specifics on a location and technology of the future power plant ," Aqchulaqov said then.

      Kazakhtan's future energy balance includes a nuclear power plant with an installed capacity of 2.4 gigawattes (GW) as a new source of basic generation.

      Kazakh President Kassym Jomart Tokayev has numerous times spoken in favor of constructing the nuclear power plant saying it would solve issues arising from increasing electricity consumption in the country.
