Turkey will open the bids for construction of a nuclear energy power plant in September, the energy minister announced on Wednesday.
Turkey's Energy & Natural Resources Minister Hilmi Guler said that Turkey would open the bids for a nuclear energy power plant in September.
"The tender process still continues," he said in an international opening conference of the EUbuild Project in Istanbul.
Issues including European Union (EU) policies and industry, EU and construction industry, energy efficiency in buildings as well as construction and environment will be discussed during the conference.
The "Awareness Raising about Potential Impact of the EU Accession and Cooperation in the Building Materials Sector" Project aims to contribute to the full familiarisation of the building-materials industry to the EU Acquis and European standards through the Business Representative Organisations (BROs) in Bulgaria, Romania and Turkey. As part of the project, strengthening the organisational capacity of the autonomous and effective BROs in the building-materials sector is also targeted.
On solar energy, Guler said that concerned authorities had drawn the solar energy map of Turkey.
"Turkey can generate two-folds more electricity from the sun when compared with the electricity it is actually generating," the minister said.
Guler also said that Turkey would open three wind power plants this month.
