Current Implementation Status
The project is currently on “licensing, engineering and construction site preparation” stage. Currently, the works to obtain the necessary permits are underway. It is expected that the main power generation license will be obtained by the end of 2016. AKKUYU NUCLEAR has also applied for a limited construction license. The grant of the main construction license is expected in 2018.
In December 2014, the Ministry for Environment and Urbanization of the Republic of Turkey approved the Environmental Impact Assessment report for Akkuyu NPP construction project.
In January 2015, JSC AKKUYU NUCLEAR and TETAS (Turkish State Power Trading Company) signed the term sheet for a Power Purchase Agreement.
In June 2016, the Republic of Turkey adopted amendments to the Coastal Law, the Power Market Law and the law protecting olive groves, which had previously limited the implementation of nuclear power projects.
