Greenpeace protested against the Akkuyu Bay reactor because the site is only 20-25 kilometers from an active fault line and wouldn't meet western safety criteria. The claim is based on a 1991 Turkish-British study of the fault line and was issued after the latest earthquake in SE turkey (170 km from Akkuyu Bay), which killed 100 people.
