Moscow, Russia (Sputnik) Apr 23, 2015
Construction of the research reactor will be a first step in nuclear energy development in Indonesia, a Rosatom spokesperson told RIA Novosti earlier in the month.
"Indonesia's national nuclear energy agency BATAN has declared a Russian-Indonesian consortium winner in a tender for a blueprint in a project to build a multi-functional energy reactor in Indonesia," Rosatom said in a statement.
It is expected that signing the contract for blueprint preparation will take place by April 30, while the announcement of the contract for the construction of the research reactor is scheduled for the beginning of 2016.
The consortium lists Indonesia's Rekayasa Engineering and Kogas Driyap Consultant and Russia's NUKEM Technologies GmbH, a subsidiary of Rosatom.
On April 13, Rosatom Deputy Director Kirill Komarov said Moscow can offer cooperation in building nuclear reactors to such countries as Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand and Vietnam.
