In the statement made by the company, it was stated that the works at Akkuyu NPP site, Turkey’s first nuclear power plant, are continuing rapidly in all four power units.
In the statement, it was stated that preparations will be made for the installation and commissioning of the turbine building equipment in the 1st unit in the coming period, and it was emphasized that they will work intensely to ensure quality in the construction and installation operations in the 2nd, 3rd and 4th units and to carry out the works in accordance with the promised dates.
In the statement, it was noted that the companies involved in the project should also have the qualifications specific to these construction works, and it was reminded that the contract made by the project management with IC İçtaş İnşaat Sanayi ve Ticaret AŞ, which completed its work in the Akkuyu NPP Project, was terminated.
In the statement, it was stated that it was decided to restructure the project participants involved in the construction process, and the following statements were included:
“A contract has been signed with TSM Enerji İnşaat Sanayi Limited Şirketi (TSM), which was established by Akkuyu Nuclear in accordance with the laws of the Republic of Turkey and is a legal entity in Turkey. All ongoing works within the scope of the existing sub-contracts, which have been involved in the NGS construction project since October 2019, will be transferred to TSM, which has experience in implementing high-tech projects. New contracts will be made between TSM and the existing subcontractors involved in the project, similar to those concluded between the former main contractor-joint venture TITAN2-IC İÇTAŞ İNŞAAT ANONİM ŞİRKETİ and the subcontractors. In addition to ensuring the continuity and quality of the work at the construction site, it will also be ensured that the contracted construction dates for Akkuyu NPP are respected, the rights of the workers are protected in terms of working conditions and the salaries of all subcontractors are paid on time.
In the statement, it was also emphasized that all the works in the field were carried out in accordance with the planned schedule, under the continuous supervision of the independent building inspection organizations and the Nuclear Regulatory Authority (NDK).
