Cabinet approves draft funding plan for nuclear decommissioning

At its session on July 3, the Cabinet approved the draft funding plan for operators of nuclear facilities to pay to a decommissioning fund. According to the plan, these are to start paying contributions towards the liquidation of nuclear facilities and the handling of spent nuclear fuel according to new rules, starting on July 15.

Operators are to pay a fixed sum to a nuclear account in the National Nuclear Fund; specifically, Sk350,000 per megawatt of the installed electrical output of a nuclear facility. Moreover, operators must pay a variable contribution equal to 5.95 percent of the sales price of the electrical energy generated in nuclear facilities in the previous year.
