LONDON, Sept 6 (Reuters) - Russia's Rosatom has won a licence to start building the second of four planned nuclear reactors in Akkuyu, Turkey, and is preparing to install the first steel equipment on unit one this autumn, the company's deputy CEO Kirill Komarov said on Friday.
The $20 billion project to build four Russian-design nuclear reactors in Akkuyu on the Mediterranean coast is one of the largest nuclear new-build projects worldwide and will allow Turkey to join the small club of nations with civil nuclear energy.
"We were granted a licence for the second unit at the end of August," Komarov told Reuters at the World Nuclear Association (WNA) annual conference. (Reporting by Geert De Clercq Editing by David Goodman)
