DUBLIN--(http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/rb9v4b/nuclear_power_mark) has announced the addition of the "Nuclear Power Market in Belarus" report to their offering.)--Research and Markets (
Belarus does not have any nuclear power plants as of now and most of its energy producing plants are gas fired. The country imports as much as 90% of its gas supplies from Russia and overall aims for 25-30% energy independence, compared with half that now.
Back in year 2006, the Belarusian government approved a plan for the construction of an initial 2,000 MWe PWR nuclear plant, the Belarusian NPP, in the Mahilyow Voblast. In February 2007 it was announced that construction would start in 2008, for commissioning in 2014-2015 which was later put off to 2015-2020. The proposed 2400 MWe nuclear plant is expected to reduce gas imports by 5 billion metric cube per year, costing over US$ 800 million, while the fuel and waste management for it would be a quarter of this.
In November 2011 it was agreed that Russia's Gazprom would pay $2.5 billion for the 50% of Belarus' gas transmission network called Beltransgaz, it did not already own. This was linked to Russian finance for the first Belarus nuclear plant. Earlier, there had been studies on both a domestic plant using Russian technology, and Belarus participation in a new nuclear unit at Smolensk or Kursk in Russia.
