Currently, there are more than 440 nuclear power plants in 31 countries, generating 14% of the world’s electricity. IAEA predicts that this proportion will increase up to 25% in 2030, with 90 new nuclear power plants entering service. Over 60 reactors are under construction in 13 countries while about 160 reactors are planned and over 320 are proposed. Turkey and MENA countries are among the countries are countries that are vigorously pursuing the development of nuclear power.
Approximately $400 billion worth of nuclear projects have been planned in the MENA region. Constructing the first reactor since 2009, UAE projects that nuclear energy will produce nearly a quarter of the nation’s electricity needs and a further 12 units will generate over $60 billion in new contracts over the next decade. Jordan plans for at least one 1000 MW reactor by 2019, and Saudi Arabia is looking to build 16 reactors by 2030 with a budget of $100 billion. The remaining countries have near-term plans or a more long-term interest, as they closely follow the region’s activities.
Turkey, one of the biggest emerging countries in the regional nuclear power industry, has undersigned a $20 billion project for the construction of a nuclear power plant in Akkuyu with Rosatom, and will establish another 19 nuclear units by 2023. The site of the third nuclear power plant has not yet been confirmed, but Energy Minister Taner Yildiz announced that Turkey will begin accepting bids for the construction of the plant. Unsuccessful bidders from the second round can participate as well, making Turkey the the biggest stage for global nuclear energy players in 2013.
The congress in Turkey will offer you a comprehensive coverage of the nuclear energy market with fresh project updates and various case studies. Meanwhile, for those who are keen to find new investment opportunities or strengthen their presence in this market, this 2-day congress will provide plenty of opportunity to meet your potential future partners.
The leaders from the world’s most innovative initiatives and technologies will be there to share their vision and experience, shaping the future of this regional nuclear hub. This event will provide you with an excellent opportunity to meet your peers and exchange ideas on cutting-edge technologies and absorb experiences from present projects or accelerate the steps of the planned projects.
