“If the Brazilian government shows interest, Rosatom is ready to discuss projects for building and operating Russia-designed nuclear power plants and also act as an investor. If Brazil decides to support private investors, we are available. But this is a decision of the Brazilian government.”

Brazilian firm Eletrobras plans to build four to eight nuclear power plants in the country by 2030.

Rosatom is currently implementing projects for the construction of 28 nuclear power plants, 19 of which are abroad, with ongoing projects in India, China, Belarus, Turkey and Vietnam. Rosatom’s order book is about $70 billion over a 10-year period, according to the firm’s website.
