TOKYO (Sputnik) – "We are ready to actively invite Japanese companies to cooperate on the realization of Russian projects on construction of nuclear power plants abroad," Kirill Komarov told reporters in Tokyo.
He said that Japanese manufacturers could supply turbines, control systems, and other equipment.
Rosatom is holding a November 26-27 workshop in Tokyo on Russian nuclear technologies for back-end power solutions. The meeting agenda will include discussions on cooperation to mitigate the consequences of the 2011 Fukushima nuclear plant disaster.
The 2011 tsunami caused a meltdown of several of Japan’s Fukushima nuclear power plant reactors resulting in the world’s largest leak of radioactive material since the 1986 Chernobyl disaster.
In 2014, the Japanese government appointed Rosatom a partner in a demonstration project to clean radioactive isotopes from the waters around Fukushima.
