Moscow, September 30 - Neftegaz.RU. Russian President Vladimir Putin expressed readiness to help Kazakhstan build and maintain atomic power stations, Kazinform reported.

Noting that Russia looks closely at the plans of neighboring countries, friends, and allies, including Kazakhstan, regarding atomic energy development, Russian President proposed Kazakhstani partners to provide help in building and maintaining atomic power stations in case such decisions will be made.
He said:
  • Russia offers our partners, including Kazakhstan, assistance and support in the construction and operation of nuclear power plants if they make such decisions
He also added that such a proposal was put forward taking into account the statements made by the Kazakh President.
Putin also talked about the creation of a new entire sector, including training specialists at Russian universities in new professions related to the use of atomic energy.

Putin concluded:
  • The impact of NPPs on air pollution is negligible
  • Russian specialists are striving to consistently reduce the impact on the atmosphere by improving technologies and commissioning efficient gas purification plants
Putin stressed that Russia and Kazakhstan have broad prospects for joint work in the field of environment and green economy.

Kazakhstan has 12% of the world's uranium resources and is the world's largest producer of uranium.
A Russian-designed BN-350 sodium-cooled fast reactor operated near Aktau in Kazakhstan for 26 years until 1999, generating electricity and desalinating water.

The question of nuclear power in Kazakhstan has been discussed for many years, with both large and small reactors included in various draft energy plans over the last decade.
