Slovakia must decommission Bohunice's reactors in 2006 and 2008

SLOVAKIA must decommission two ageing nuclear reactors in Jaslovské Bohunice (Trnava region) by 2006-end and 2008-end, in accordance with the European Union (EU) accession agreement, European Energy Commissioner Andris Piebalgs told Slovak Economy Mister Pavol Rusko at an April 8 meeting in Brussels, the TASR news agency reported.

Rusko failed to persuade the EU to agree with his plan for simultaneous decommissioning of the plant's two reactors in 2008. Rusko says Slovakia will now focus on obtaining more financial assistance from Brussels for the decommissioning.

Last year the European Commission proposed €237 million (Sk9.21 billion) over the 2007 to 13 period to decommission Bohunice. Slovak officials, however, find the sum too little and want it increased. EU members have yet to reach agreement on the financing.
