The construction of a new nuclear power station is the biggest and most important project for independent Armenia. It will be built by Rosatom. The project is so important because it will finally ensure the country’s energy security and increase its political role in the region. It will also increase the educational level in Armenia as specialists in different sciences will be required to service the power station.

Analyst Sevak Sarukhanian recently spoke about the economic viability of the project, connecting it with the issue of opening the Armenia-Turkey border. He said that if the borders are open this will be very beneficial for the country’s energy security.
