Electricity supplier to be split before privatisation

The commission for privatisation of the state electricity generator Slovenské elektrarne (SE) has drawn up a list of parts of the company that may be retained by the state. Not one of the bidders for SE in the first round was interested in the company as a whole.

Bidders are thought to include French EDF, German E.ON and RWE, British International Power and British Energy, and Italian Enel.
