Akkuyu Nuclear, owner/operator of the Akkuyu NPP under construction in Turkey by Russian nuclear state corporation Rosatom, on 9 December signed a connection agreement with Turkish Electricity Transmission Company (TEIAS) TEIAS. This will enable work to begin on a power distribution system for Akkuyu NPP, which will include six high-voltage transmission lines. Under the agreement, the power generated by Akkuyu NPP will be transmitted from the Akkuyu NPP switchgear via 400 kV power lines to six transformer substations that are part of Turkey's unified energy system. The total length of the high-voltage lines that will be built as part of the Akkuyu NPP power distribution scheme will exceed 1000 km.

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.
