The construction of the second unit of Turkey’s Akkuyu nuclear power plant may start in the first quarter of 2020, Russia’s atomic energy corporation Rosatom’s Director General Alexey Likhachev has said.

Likhachev said that Titan-2 IC Ictas, a joint venture between Concern Titan-2 JSC and the Turkish construction company IC Ictas, carries out the construction of the plant.
