Jordan's nuclear plans to continue on schedule
Japan's Fukushima disaster won't slow Jordan's atomic bid: officials
According to officials, Jordan’s nuclear program will continue on schedule despite countries across the world pausing their plans to review safety features.
Jordan’s Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources, Khaled Toukan, said: “We are still set for our dates as previously envisioned, and we are watching the Japan situation closely as it unfolds,” in a report by the Jordan Times.
The schedule sees Jordan having almost completed its technology selection process for its first nuclear power plant, and is expected to select one of three short-listed companies by June 30 to discuss the construction of the nation’s first power plant, planned for commission in 2019.
