    Rosatom claims it is currently in talks on the construction of at least 30 units for nuclear power plants abroad.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Russia’s nuclear energy corporation Rosatom is currently in talks on the construction of at least 30 units for nuclear power plants abroad, according to Rosatom’s annual 2014 report published on its website Friday.

    "Besides the projects being completed under signed legal documents, there are around 30 nuclear power plant units abroad that are on the negotiations level and could expand the state corporation Rosatom’s portfolio in the upcoming years," the report reads.

    By late 2014, the corporation was entering an active phase of negotiations with Egypt, South Africa, Kazakhstan and Nigeria, the report adds.

    Rosatom’s ongoing cooperation on nuclear power plant construction in China, India, Turkey, Belarus and Vietnam is at various stages, accounting for a total of 11 units. Preparations are underway for the construction of Bangladesh’s first nuclear power plant.

    Rosatom’s portfolio boasted a total of 29 units abroad at the end of 2014, 10 more than that of 2013. In nominal amounts, its foreign orders totaled $101.4 billion last year, a 40-percent increase from the previous year.
