Russian state corporation Rosatom and the Department of Energy have agreed to cooperate during the bilateral meeting of President Rodrigo Duterte and Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev on November 13.
The Memorandum of Understanding on Cooperation was signed by Rosatom Deputy Director General for International Relations Nikolay Spasskiy and Energy Secretary Alfonso Cusi.
“The parties intend to cooperate in the development of the national nuclear infrastructure in the Republic of the Philippines to support further implementation of the peaceful nuclear program in the country,” Rosatom said.
“Partners will also explore the possibilities for the construction of land based or floating nuclear power plants equipped with small modular reactors in the Republic of the Philippines. In addition, the technical conditions of the Bataan NPP will be assessed to determine the possibility of its reopening and eventual commissioning,” it added.
In May 2017, Rosatom and the Department of Science and Technology signed a Memorandum of Understanding on cooperation in the peaceful uses of nuclear energy.
