Kazakhstan government has not made the final decision on construction of the nuclear power station, Tengrinews.kz reports citing chairman of the nuclear energy commission of Kazakhstan Ministry of Industry and New Technologies Timur Zhantikin.

“Nobody has said whether the power station would be built in Aktau or not. Technically all the documents are ready and we are waiting for the government’s decision. Several construction platforms are being reviewed. The first issue, and the principal one, is whether we really need a nuclear block. And the second issue is if we need it, then where it should be located,” Zhantikin told the journalists at the international fair Kazatomexpo in Astana.

He noted that several platforms for construction of the nuclear power station were suggested in 2008. They included several locations in Aktau city, Balkhash town, East-Kazakhstan and South-Kazakhstan oblasts.

In March 2013 a representative of KazAtomProm said that a policy decision on construction of the nuclear power station in Kazakhstan was made and it would most probably be built in Aktau.

The chairman of the nuclear energy commission confirmed that the political decision was, indeed, made but specified that the law required that decision to be made by the government of Kazakhstan. According to Zhantikin, the government will make the decision before the end of this year.

As for the possibility of construction of a nuclear station in Aktau, Zhantikin noted: “Basically Aktau was considered as the most likely construction platform and a feasibility study was made. Meetings were held, as well as public discussions. The Aktau project is quite interesting, as it provides for the use of so-called small and medium power reactors. This is the market sector that has not been tapped yet. That means that there is a demand for such reactors but practically no offers at the market yet. There are several interesting projects, including Russian VBR-300 that was used as a basis for the feasibility study.”

In the beginning of 2013 Kazakhstan President instructed the government to define a place to accommodate the nuclear power plant.
