Befor building call a seismological consultant...

Muelheim-Kaerlich nuclear reactor had its license revoked because the risk posed by earthquakes.
Ecemis fault line is only 25kms from Akkuyu Bay reactor.
Philippine Nuclear Power Plant, I believe is around a fault line?
Now Iran

building a nuclear reactor in a fault zone or in an area of seismic activity greatly increases the risk of a catastrophic accident (imo).
is it the power they want are something else?

Per a BBC backgrounder:

It's between three. plates and getting pushed up all the time. Same thing same place killed 30,000 or more some years ago; this one epicentered deeper, so your original-post count is low by only several hundred. Sad
