Rosatom could build low-capacity NPP in Mongolia

MOSCOW. Dec 4 (Interfax) - Rusatom Energy Projects, a Rosatom state nuclear energy corporation entity, and Mongolia's Mon-Atom are considering the possibility of building a low-capacity nuclear power plant in Mongolia, according to the agreement signed as part of the UN COP28 climate conference.

Rosatom and Mongolia's Nuclear Energy Commission signed a memorandum of cooperation on the construction of a Nuclear Science and Technology Center at the start of 2023.

In addition, Mongolia's Dayan Deerkh Energy had shown an interest in working with Rosatom on nuclear, wind and hydropower projects.

Rosatom has spoken of growing demand for low-capacity nuclear power plants around the world. Reference projects within a country enable Rosatom to conduct an active dialogue with foreign customers. Projects in Kyrgyzstan and Myanmar are under consideration, among others.
