Rumyantsev supports far east waste store

3 May 2002

The Russian nuclear energy minister Alexander Rumyantsev said that the construction of the storage facility on the island of Simushir in the Russian far east is technically possible.

He said: "In Japan, there is a seismically active zone, and everything works fine. We are even prepared to reproduce Japanese technology on Simushir. We might even acquire technologies from Japan and conclude a long-term contract for the construction work."
