MOSCOW (Sputnik) — In August, Rosatom signed the first commercial contracts with the Bolivian Nuclear Energy Agency (ABEN) on the center’s construction, in particular on the preliminary engineering survey of the site and on the evaluation of Bolivia's nuclear infrastructure.

"The project is being developed as scheduled, we are constantly working on it, it will be fine," Spassky told reporters on the sidelines of the 11th International Public Dialogue Forum held by Rosatom at the Rossiya Segodnya International Information Agency.

The NRTC is expected to allow Bolivia to start the development of nuclear technologies to be applied in science, healthcare, geology and agriculture, among other areas. The center will be used to train personnel for the country's nuclear industry.

The NRTC construction site is located almost 13,500 feet above the sea level, which makes it the most elevated nuclear facility construction site.
