Russia, Myanmar to draft pre-feasibility study for low-capacity NPP

MOSCOW. Nov 22 (Interfax) - Russia and Myanmar signed a memorandum during Atomexpo 2022 to draft a pre-feasibility study for a low-capacity nuclear plant, Rosatom said on Telegram.

Rosatom and Myanmar signed a roadmap on cooperation for 2022-2023 during the Eastern Economic Forum in September. The document envisages expanding the bilateral regulatory framework, possibly implementing a NPP project with low-capacity reactors in Myanmar, as well as training personnel and forming a positive public opinion regarding nuclear energy in Myanmar.

Low-capacity NPPs are one of the promising areas in Rosatom's profile line. The first mobile project of this kind was the Akademik Lomonosov floating NPP. Rosatom is also working on a low-capacity NPP project in the Sakha Republic, or Yakutia.
