The Akkuyu nuclear plant, under construction on Turkey’s southern coast, 120 km southwest of Mersin, will comprise four 1114 MWe VVER-1200 reactors. The reactors are expected to come online between 2024 and 2028.

In November 2022 it was announced that the Turkish government had commenced studies into the potential construction of a third nuclear power plant.

In January 2023 KEPCO submitted a proposal for the construction of four APR-1400 reactors at an undisclosed site in the northern part of the country. This followed reports of discussions in late 2022 between KEPCO and the Turkish government on the development of four APR-1400 reactors at Sinop. In March 2023 state generation company EUAS established a nuclear-focused subsidiary known as TUNAS, tasked with “founding” the Sinop project. TUNAS plans to commence excavations at the site in 2023.
