    Kazakhstan shortlists suppliers for atomic power plant project

    June 28, 2022 - BBC International Reports (Central Asia)


      By BBC Monitoring

      Kazakhstan has shortlisted four out of six potential suppliers for the construction of the first nuclear power plant, the privately-owned Kazakh news website Tengrinews.z reported on 27 June.

      It said that the Samruk-Kazyna welfare fund together with the Ministry of Energy and other interested organisations looked at "the technologies of six global suppliers - the American NuScale Power, the American-Japanese GE-Hitachi, the Korean KHNP, the Chinese CNNC, Russia's Rosatom and the French EDF - based on proposals they had submitted".

      "Given the lack of global experience in the construction and operation of low-power reactors proposed by NuScale Power and GE-Hitachi, this technology is regarded as promising for the future development of nuclear energy. For the first nuclear power plant in Kazakhstan, a shortlist has been compiled that is made up of four suppliers that offer time-tested high-power reactor technologies with operating experience," it said.

      Earlier, President Kasym-Zhomart Tokayev had said that Kazakhstan had chosen the location where the nuclear plant would be constructed and was "studying technologies from potential suppliers", the news website recalled.

      The plant, which is expected to be constructed near Balkhash lake, can be built by 2035, the report concluded.
