Work on Turkey’s first nuclear power plant has been held up by fissures discovered in the foundations, Turkish pro-government outlet HaberTürk reported on Monday.

Russian state nuclear energy firm Rosatom began construction of the Akkuyu nuclear plant in the southern Turkish province of Mersin last year.

But the project hit an early hurdle when Turkey’s Atomic Energy Authority (TAEK) discovered fissures in concrete foundations laid since the groundbreaking ceremony in April 2018, HaberTürk’s Olcay Aydilek reported.

TAEK first discovered cracks in the concrete last July, and ordered the affected concrete broken up and laid again.

Cracks were discovered again in the newly laid concrete, and the TAEK team ordered the whole section excavated and re-laid, Aydilek said.
