Belarus may start building nuclear power plant in 2008

Xinhua - English

MOSCOW, Jan. 23 (Xinhuanet) -- Belarus may begin building a nuclear power plant in 2008, a government official said on Monday.
"Construction of a nuclear power plant is planned to begin in 2008. The project's deadline is 2012," the unidentified official was quoted by the Inter fax news agency as saying. He added the site for the facility has yet to be selected.
The official noted concerns for the project in the country after the 1986 disaster at the Chernobyl nuclear facility, but he said Belarus "cannot avoid taking this step, especially as modern nuclear power plants have much more reliable safeguards."
The nuclear power plant is expected to save up to 4 billion cubic meters of natural gas annually for Belarus and reduce the country's spending on energy by 200 to 300 million U.S. dollars a year.
