Neka / Nekka
N36°39' E53°17'

Neka is reportedly an important nuclear weapons research facility. In April 1996 London's Sunday Express reported that Iran was building a large nuclear reactor in the Nekka region, near the Caspian sea. According to one report, it is claimed that two 400 MW Russian nuclear reactors were to be installed in an underground bunker at this location, although the absence of corroborating reports strongly suggested that claims to this effect are unfounded.

As of 11 April 2000 Russian 2-meter resolution KVR-1000 imagery coverage was not available via the SPIN-2 service on TerraServer, nor was archived Space Imaging IKONOS 1-meter imagery of this facility available on the CARTERRA™ Archive.
