The Russian State Atomic Energy Corporation “Rosatom” has entered an international competition, to build two nuclear power plants in Saudi Arabia, with leading international companies, according to Rosatom’s executive vice president Kirill Komarov.
“We have submitted a bid for the construction of two nuclear power plants in Saudi Arabia, and we are competing with other leading international nuclear companies,” Komarov said in a press statement.
