Russian nuclear energy deals with Egypt reach almost $60bn

Russian state corporation Rosatom, which is building Egypt’s first nuclear power plant (NPP), has a range of contracts worth tens of billions of dollars with the country, the company’s chief has announced.

According to Rosatom head Alexey Likhachev, the company launched a commercial package of all Egyptian contracts in mid-December. It includes the construction of a WWER (Water-Water Energetic Reactor) for the nuclear power plant, as well as the NPP’s maintenance and supplies of fuel.

“This is certainly a very big contribution to the development of Russian-Egyptian relations,” Likhachev said at a meeting with Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev.
