Rosatom to start building nuclear power plant in Uzbekistan's Aydarkul lake in 2020-2021

31 May 2019

Russia's state nuclear corporation Rosatom confirmed its intentions to startbuilding a nuclear power plant in Uzbekistan in 2020-2021 near the Aydarkul Lakein Farish district of Jizzakh region.

CEO of Rosatom Alexei Likhachev, speaking during the visit of Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev to Uzbekistan on May 29-30, said his company will obtain permits by the end of 2020 and have a ground breaking ceremony in 2020-2021.

Lake Aydarkul is part of the man-made Aydar-Arnasay system of lakes, which covers an area of 4,000 square kilometres (1,500 mi²). This system includes 3 brackish water lakes (Aydar Kul, Arnasay and Tuzkan) located in the saline depressions of the south-eastern Kyzyl Kum (now in Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan). The lakes are the unintentional byproduct of Soviet planning.
