Economy Minister seeks investors to complete Mochovce nuclear plant

Slovakia might seek an investor for the completion of the third and fourth blocks of the nuclear facility in Mochovce, news wire SITA reported.

Slovak Economy Minister Pavol Rusko considers the completion of the blocks important due to Slovakia's obligation to shut down two blocks of the V1 nuclear facility in Jaslovské Bohunice between 2006 and 2008.

Lack of finances stalled the construction of the Mochovce blocks in 1992.
