On June 7 Russia’s nuclear power engineering firm Rosatom and the Republic of Guinea signed a memorandum of understanding to cooperate on the development of floating power units (FPUs) to supply electricity to Guinea, which is on the Atlantic Ocean in West Africa. The agreement was signed on the sidelines of the June 5-8 St. Petersburg International Economic Forum.

Vladimir Aptekarev, Deputy Head of Rosatom’s Mechanical Engineering Division, said, according to a statement by Rosatom.“The cooperation involves….the RITM-200 reactors, which have already proven efficient. As you know, the power supply issue in the African region is urgent, and our main task is to provide a fast, reliable and environmentally friendly solution for our partners. The signed memorandum supplements the roadmap of Rosatom’s Mechanical Engineering Division for the production of advanced equipment for the new generation of nuclear industry and demonstrates the high global interest in our technology.”
