Belarus agrees on nuclear power plant construction without knowing prices


The tender for construction of a nuclear power plant has not been announced yet. However, Belarusian scientists tend to use Russian ideas.
Kiev Scientific Research Institute “Energopoect” has been chosen as the international expert in the construction of the nuclear power plant.

The plant is planned to cost about 4 billion dollars. However, the deputy head of the Presidium of the Academy of Sciences Uladzimir Tsimashpolski noted that they were not sure about the real cost of the nuclear power plant.

According to him, equipment producers avoid mentioning the price. They are suggesting that they should sign a contract before discussing the price.
