The Turkish government’s continuing nuclear ambitions after Fukushima. Alidost Numan- Green Party, Turkey
The Akkuyu Aggreement Interstate agreement between Turkey and Russia, outside the durisdiction of national law: First of its kind in the world MW, 4 nuclear reactors in Akkuyu Plans to complete in 10 years – 2020 in operation Total cost is 20 million USD, to be reflected to electricity cost
Will be built by the Russian state nuclear company (100% of investement and shares belong to Russia) Purchase guarantee for electricity for 15 years from avg US cent 71 billion USD total payment to Russia from Turkey in 15 years Nuclear waste and decomissioning is a question
Category 1 Earthquake zone ! The Ecemiş Faultline Workshop conducted at Niğde University in May 1998 determined Akkuyu as a Category 1 Earthquake zone. The site- licence given in 1976 presumed the Ecemiş fault was inactive.

Sinop Agreement for talks with Japan signed in December Still going on as Fukushima accident is unfolding. Again with an inter-state agreement 5600MW, € 10b, 2019 some numbers that are being pronounced Very close to North Anatolian faultline.
İğneada in Thrace The government officially announced that it plans 3 NPPs by 2023 Thrace is the most likely site for the third plant, because of relatively less earthquake activity. Recently statements by beurocrats confirm İğneada on the Black Sea coast as the possible site.
Esspecially, Sinop is close to N. Anatalian faultline
