Turkey's Akkuyu Nuclear Power Plant to Be Launched by 2023 With Russia's Help
In 2010, Russia and Turkey signed an intergovernmental agreement on cooperation in construction and operation of the first Turkish nuclear power plant on Akkuyu site in the Mersin province in southern Turkey.

Akkuyu is the world's first nuclear power plant project implemented on BOO ("build-own-operate") basis. In accordance with this model, Russia will build, own and operate the plant.

Akkuyu NPP project includes four power units with Russian VVER-1200 3+ generation reactors. The capacity of each power unit of the NPP will be 1,200 megawatts (MW). Russia's investments in the project will amount to $22 billion.

The Turkish side expects the first unit of Akkuyu NPP to start generating electricity on October 29, 2023 on the centennial anniversary of Turkish Republic.
