Turkey seen canceling first nuclear tender -sources
Turkey is expected to cancel a tender won by a Russian-led consortium to build and construct a nuclear power plant in Turkey, government sources said on Monday, Reuters reported.
Turkey will then reissue the tender for the plant in Akkuyu on the Mediterranean coast along with the launch of a tender to build and operate a nuclear power plant in Sinop on the Black Sea in 2010, the sources said.
The first tender, won by Inter RAO (IRAO.MM), Atomstroiexport and Turkey's Park Teknik last year, was jeopardised last week when a Turkish court said the tender was invalid. The nuclear tender is part of a major raft of energy deals between Turkey and Russia signed earlier this year.
