Kazakhstan has identified potential suppliers for the construction of nuclear power stations, El.kz reports with reference to the press service of the Ministry of Energy.

"Samruk-Kazyna" JSC, together with the Ministry of Energy and interested organizations, considered the technologies of six global suppliers on the basis of previously submitted proposals from American (NuScale Power), American-Japanese (GE-Hitachi), Korean (KHNP), Chinese (CNNC), Russian (Rosatom) and French (EDF) companies.

"At the same time, given the lack of experience in the construction and operation of low-power reactors proposed by NuScale Power and GE-Hitachi in world practice, this technology is considered as a promising direction for the subsequent development of nuclear energy," the Ministry of Energy said.

For the first nuclear power plant in Kazakhstan, a short list of 4 suppliers with time-tested high-power reactor technologies with operating experience has been compiled.
