Japanese-French JV considers selling nuclear reactor to Turkey.

By bne IntelliNews December 31, 2012
A joint venture between Japan's Mitsubishi Heavy Industries and French Areva, is planning to offer selling a medium size nuclear reactor to be installed in a nuclear power plant in the Black Sea province of Sinop, the Japanese daily Nikkei reported, quoting an unnamed official from Turkey's ministry of energy. Turkey has been in negotiations with four companies from South Korea, China, Japan and Canada for the construction of a planned second nuclear power plant. South Korea's current bid is not acceptable and unless it comes up with a very different proposal S. Korea will be out of the race, energy minister Taner Yildiz said last week.
