SE to complete Mochovce nuclear power plant

SLOVAKIA’S dominant power producer, Slovenské Elektrárne (SE), is to complete the third and fourth blocks of the Mochovce nuclear power plant (EMO).

The Italian firm Enel, which holds a 66-percent stake in SE, made the decision 10 months after entering SE.

"Construction at Mochovce should begin in the second half of this year," Prime Minister Robert Fico said on February 23 following a meeting with the head of Enel, Fulvio Conti.

EMO's third and fourth blocks could begin producing electricity in 2012. SE is to invest Sk62-63 billion in completing Mochovce, Conti said.

Fico said the government would not participate in the project financially.
