Bloomberg - Vinci SA of France, Brussels-based Suez-Tractebel SA and China Guandong Nuclear Power Group Co. are among international companies to express interest in building Turkey's first nuclear-power station. Representatives from the companies, which all applied for documents in the Turkish government tender, met with Energy Minister Hilmi Guler in the capital Ankara in a final briefing before the September 24 auction, the ministry said.
