Turkey's energy minister has said the country would choose by the end of this year from among foreign bidders for the construction of a nuclear power plant on its Black Sea coast.
"For the second nuclear plant, China, South Korea, Japan and Canada are preparing their bids. One of these four will be eliminated by the end one of this month, and by the end of the year the tender will be decided upon," Taner Yildiz told reporters in the central city of Kayseri on Thursday.
Turkey had already sealed an agreement with Russia for the construction of the country's first nuke plant in the Akkuyu region of the Mediterranean port city of Mersin.
The second plant is planned to be built in the Black Sea port city of Sinop.
For the Akkuyu plant, Russia's state nuclear company Atomstroiexport is expected to begin in 2013 the construction of four nuclear reactors with a total capacity of 4,800 megawatts.
