Jordanian authorities have announced the chosen bidder for the country’s nuclear power plant will be revealed in November.

In a report by AFP, Jordan’s Energy and Mineral Resources Minister Khaled Tukan said: “Three companies were selected in June – a consortium by France’s Areva and Japan’s Mitsubishi, Russia’s Atomstroyexport and Atomic Energy of Canada.”

“The winning bidder will be announced in November,” he added. “Nuclear energy is seen as the technology of choice for satisfying future electricity demands and requirements for new power plants.” Work to identify a site for the plant is currently under way.
