Turkey to issue 2nd nuclear tender in 3-4 months: Min

Turkey will issue the second of three tenders to build and operate a nuclear power plant in Turkey in three to four months, Turkish Energy Minister Taner Yildiz said on Monday.

Turkey, which is facing a power shortfall in coming years without investment, has already held one tender to construct a nuclear power plant, but that tender is under threat by a court decision which could invalidate it.

Turkey will 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 first tender, won by Inter RAO, 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.
