EdF could build next nuclear facility in Bohunice

ELECTRICITÉ de France (EdF) has expressed an interest in building a nuclear power station on the site of the V1 nuclear power station in Jaslovské Bohunice, which is currently being decommissioned. "We want to contribute to the development of the power sector in Slovakia and we will make use of our resources and tools to build a new electric-energy generating facility here so that Slovakia can become self-sufficient in power production," EdF Vice-President Marc Boudier told journalists following his meeting with PM Robert Fico on June 25.

This makes the French company the third party to consider the future utilization of the remaining infrastructure after the two reactor units of the V1 power station are decommissioned. German company E.ON and the Italian company Enel have also showed interest in building a nuclear power stations in Jaslovské Bohunice, the SITA newswire wrote.
