Turkey is reassessing its major partner for a second NPP to be built in the Black Sea province of Sinop, Energy Minister Fatih Dönmez said on 19 January. He told the Anadolu Agency, that the time schedule and pricing of the nuclear power plant in Sinop fell short of the ministry’s expectations after the results of feasibility studies, carried out by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI). “We agreed with the Japanese side to not continue our cooperation regarding this matter,” Dönmez said, adding that Turkey may hold talks with other suppliers for construction of the plant. The project was agreed on by the Japanese and Turkish governments in 2013. A consortium led by MHI was conducting a feasibility study until March for the construction of a 4,500MWe plant in Sinop.

Welding of the reactor pressure vessel cover for Unit 1 of the Akkuyu nuclear power station in Turkey has been completed Russia’s state nuclear corporation Rosatom said.
The RPV Cover is being supplied by Rosatom subsidiary Atomenergomash, which is supplying reactor equipment for all four units planned for Akkuyu. Atomenergomash said the welding had taken 17 days.
In July the first major components, including the melt trap, arrived onsite at Akkuyu. The 150-tonne melt trap, also known as a core catcher, is a key feature of the passive safety system for the Russia-supplied VVER-1200 reactor.
The Akkuyu nuclear power station is being built near Mersin on Turkey’s southern Mediterranean coast for €20bn under an intergovernmental contract signed in 2010.
