Rosatom to Bid in Argentina

ST. PETERSBURG — Argentina is planning in June to conduct a tender for nuclear power plant construction, Rosatom deputy chief Kirill Komarov told the Atomex-North-West conference Tuesday.

"In June, Argentina will announce a nuclear power plant construction tender, in which Rosatom is also planning to participate," Komarov said.

As of March 2011, total orders for Rosatom stood at 142 billion rubles ($5 billion), almost 90 billion rubles, or more than 60 percent, of which is from enterprises in the Northwest Federal District, Komarov said. He said 10 power blocks are now being built in Russia, as well as five blocks overseas.
