Rosatom fancies PLN partnership!
Russia’s Rosatom State Atomic Energy Corporation says that it is interested in developing a nuclear power plant (PLTN) project in Indonesia in the future.
“We have met with officials from BATAN [National Nuclear Energy Agency] for this partnership,” Russian Federation senior trade expert representative Sergey Kukushkin said in Jakarta on Thursday as quoted by kontan.co.id.
He said that places like Batam, Bangka Belitung, Kalimantan and West Papua are potential areas for PLTN.
He said that Rosatom was using the latest technology to support its nuclear plants across the globe so that the plants were resistant to earthquakes, tornadoes and tsunamis.
In addition, the company was ready to not only transfer its nuclear knowledge and technology to Indonesia but also to finance the project, he added.
Rosatom has developed 77 nuclear reactors in 12 countries such as Iran, India, Germany and Finland. Fifty-five out of 77 reactors are operating at the moment, distributing electricity to more than 40 countries across Europe and Asia
