ROSATOM, together with partners from the Republic of Guinea, study the possibility of deploying floating power units in the country

The document was signed during the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum.

On June 7, 2024, during the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum, the Mechanical Engineering Division of ROSATOM signed a memorandum of understanding with partners from the Republic of Guinea. This Memorandum of Understanding envisages cooperation on developing floating power units (FPUs) to supply electricity to Guinea.

The document was signed in the presence of Andrey Nikipelov, Deputy Director General for Mechanical Engineering and Industrial Solutions of ROSATOM, and Igor Kotov, Head of Rosatom’s Mechanical Engineering Division.


Under the reached agreements, the parties will explore the implementation of floating power units in the Republic of Guinea and work on the project’s terms and conditions.

“The cooperation involves joint work on developing a power supply solution both to industrial and domestic consumers in the Republic of Guinea, by deploying floating nuclear power units with RITM-200 reactors, which have already proven efficient. As you know, the power supply issue in the African region is urgent, and our main task is to provide a fast, reliable and environmentally friendly solution for our partners. The signed memorandum supplements the roadmap of Rosatom’s Mechanical Engineering Division for the production of advanced equipment for the new generation of nuclear industry and demonstrates the high global interest in our technology,” said Vladimir Aptekarev, Deputy Head of ROSATOM’s Mechanical Engineering Division.
