A Russian news site reported Russia plans to build another nuclear power plant in Kaliningrad with the participation of European companies, the head of nuclear power agency Rosatom said on Wednesday.

RIA Novosti quoted Sergei Kiriyenko as saying "We are ready to offer foreign partners, primarily European ones, up to 49% in the Kaliningrad Nuclear Power Plant."

The new power plant will be located 120 km from the city of Kaliningrad, and will have capacity of 2,300 MW at the first stage, which will comprise two reactors. Two further reactors could be added, depending on how the Kaliningrad Region's economy performs, Kiriyenko said, according to the report.

Atomstroyexport will be the main contractor of the project, and partners will be chosen in the near future.

Kiriyenko said, "Whoever offers the best price will be chosen to supply equipment."
