3 Bids for Jordan N-Plant

Atomstroiexport, SNC-Lavalin International and a Paris-based joint venture between France's Areva and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries of Japan all submitted financial offers Monday for a planned nuclear reactor in Jordan, Petra said.

The winner of the tender will be selected in December, the official news agency reported. The three bidders had presented technical offers on June 30.

Jordan, which imports almost all of its energy, has said it wants to attract investments of $14 billion for renewable energy, oil shale and nuclear power. The kingdom plans to build at least one nuclear reactor by 2019 and has signed nuclear cooperation agreements with about a dozen countries.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
