Western nuclear safety experts inspecting Bohunice

An international commission has started assessing the safety at Slovakia's Jaslovské Bohunice nuclear power station. Consisting of 10 representatives of nuclear supervisory authorities in western European countries (WENRA-the Western European Nuclear Regulators' Association), the team is taking a close look at the V-230 reactors in use at Bohunice's V-1 reactor block.

The commission will prepare a report on the safety of the V-1 block for the European Commission after its week-long inspection in Slovakia, which began on October 13. The report will answer the EC's safety concerns regarding Bohunice, which was named in a recent issue of Newsweek magazine as one of the six most dangerous nuclear plants in and around Europe. Austrian state officials have threatened to block Slovakia's EU entry ambitions unless Bohunice is shut down ahead of schedule.
