SE to challenge Austrian court ruling on Mochovce A-plant

SLOVAK power producer Slovenské Elektrárne (SE) said it would challenge an order by a Vienna district court that SE cease its operation at the Mochovce nuclear power plant, or change its technical equipment, the SITA news agency reported.

According to the Vienna court, Mochovce represents a threat to people's lives and health. The court issued its verdict following a complaint by Eva Glawischnig, deputy chairperson of the Austrian Green Party.

SE spokesman Dobroslav Dobák confirmed that the company had received the verdict. He said that the Mochovce plant meets all international standards and is controlled for safety by the local Nuclear Supervision Office (ÚJD).
