Refit of V2 nuclear station to cost Sk9.9bn

THE RECONSTRUCTION of the V2 reactor block of the Jaslovské Bohunice nuclear power station will cost Sk9.9 billion (€264 million).

The work began three years ago and should be completed in 2008, Rastislav Petrech, spokesman for the Slovenské elektrárne (SE) energy utility, told the SITA news agency.

"The goal of the V2 reconstruction is to secure a high level of nuclear safety and operational reliability of the reactors in accordance with current international standards," said Petrech. "The reconstruction will help increase the output of the V2 reactors and extend the lifespan of the power station."

One of the main aspects of the V2 reconstruction is the modernization of safety and control systems.

"About 28 percent of SE's total costs will go towards this project," Petrech said.
