Japanese firms interested in nuclear projects in Turkey.

By bne IntelliNews October 8, 2010
According to local media Japanese firms want to take part in nuclear power plant deals in Turkey. Energy minister Taner Yildiz says that the Japanese government expressed its interest in the nuclear projects and made a proposal through Toshiba. Yildiz elaborates that the Japanese authorities say they may establish the power plant in Sinop or in another Turkish city but the minister notes that currently a third power plant is not on the government's agenda. As known, Turkey already signed an agreement with Russia for the establishment of the country's first nuclear plant in Mersin and negotiations are underway with South Korea for the second plant to be built in the city of Sinop. Japan's ambassador to Turkey said that a consortium led by Toshiba may construct a nuclear plant and this consortium will include Westinghouse from the US.
