A consortium of Turkish companies Cengiz-Kolin-Kalyon (CKK) will not participate in the construction of a nuclear power plant (NPP) Akkuyu in Turkey. On Tuesday, February 6, reports the news Agency “Anadolu”.

The consortium of companies came to agreement on the commercial aspects of the project, the report says.

In may 2017 the President of Russia Vladimir Putin said that the total volume of Russian investments in the project of NPP construction “Akkuyu” in Turkey will reach $ 22 billion. In June of last year, “Rosatom” and the consortium of three Turkish companies (Cengiz, Kolin and Kalyon) signed a preliminary agreement on the transfer of SKK 49 percent in the nuclear power plant “Akkuyu”.

Russia and Turkey agreed on the construction and operation of nuclear power plant in Akkuyu in the Turkish province of Mersin in 2010. The project envisages construction of four units with Russian reactors, with a capacity of 1,200 megawatts each. The plant is being built under the concession scheme, when both the Builder and the owner of the foreign object acts on the Russian side. The plant is scheduled to be commissioned until 2023.
