EC approves 150 million euro to close Bohunice plant

The European Commission has allocated 150 million euro (6.45 billion crowns) to meet the costs of closing two reactor blocks at western Slovakia’s Bohunice nuclear plant by 2006. To receive the money, from the EU’s Phare funding programme, Slovakia must first sign a framework agreement with the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development on the opening of a joint fund to pay for the closures.
