Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced that all Akkuyu nuclear reactors in the state of Mersin overlooking the Mediterranean Sea will enter service by 2028, meeting 10% of the country's electricity needs.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Thursday that all reactors of the Akkuyu nuclear station in the southern province of Mersin will enter service by 2028.

Erdogan explained, during a popular gathering organized by the Justice and Development Party in the state of Mersin, that the construction work of the Akkuyu nuclear station, which will produce 35 billion kilowatt-hours annually, is continuing (with Russian cooperation) in the Turkish state.

He added: "All reactors of the Akkuyu nuclear station will enter service by 2028."

The station will meet 10% of Turkey's electricity demand when all its units are operational in 2028.

Akkoyu, which launched its first phase in April 2023, is the first Turkish nuclear power plant and one of the largest investments in the country, within the framework of an agreement concluded by Turkey with Russia in 2010.
