    MOSCOW, August 31 (RIA Novosti) - Russia's nuclear power equipment and service export monopoly may bid for the contract to build Morocco's first nuclear power plant, Atomstroiexport said Thursday.

    The company's press service said a delegation from Morocco's National Electricity Office met with representatives of Russia's Federal Agency for Nuclear Power, the nuclear power generating monopoly Rosenergoatom, the nuclear fuel producer and supplier TVEL and Atomstroiexport in Moscow August 30.

    The Moroccan delegation was offered a complete overview of Russian organizations capable of building modern and safe nuclear power plants overseas.

    "We have the necessary means," the source said.

    Construction would be completed in 2016-2017.

    Atomstroiexport is Russia's leading organization implementing intergovernmental agreements on the construction of nuclear facilities abroad. The company is currently building five power plants in China, India and Iran, projects worth $4.5 billion.
