Egypt, Russia sign nuclear plant agreement
The construction of the plant, the country’s first nuclear power facility, would be funded by Russia under a 35-year intergovernmental loan to Egypt.
According to Egyptian authorities, the loan will not be a financial burden on the state budget because the energy that would be produced by the plant will cover the construction cost.
The plant to be based in Dabaa will house four 1,200 megawatt nuclear reactors. ■
