MOSCOW, October 15 (RIA Novosti) - In late October Russia will announce its views on the tender for building in China units for a nuclear power plant, Andrei Malyshev acting head of the Federal Ecological, Technological and Financial Supervision Service, has said. Very soon China will announce a tender for building two sites with two units each. On October 28 those willing to participate have to file applications and hand in the tender documents by February, he said.

"The Russian side is formulating its position on participation in the tender. On October 28 it will announce it together with its proposals. Negotiations are under way", Malyshev said. And added that the Russian position will appear more serious when the first unit of China's Tianwan facility is put into operation.

Russia is now building two units for the Tianwan nuclear power plant (first stage) under a three billion dollar-odd contract.

The Tianwan plant is situated in the Tianwan locality, Jiangsu province. The site is large enough to house four units 1,000 megawatts each and has an outlook for expansion - another four units of 1,000 megawatts each.

Experts say that the success of Russian specialists in China increases Russia's chances for getting new such contracts.

Earlier, Alexander Rumyantsev, head of the Russian Nuclear Power Agency, many times said that Russia would participate in all the tenders announced by Beijing.
