Slovakia wants more money for closure of V1 A-power plant

SLOVAKIA will on May 12 ask the European Commission (EC) for more money for the planned early closure of the V1 nuclear power plant in Jaslovské Bohunice, the Pravda daily wrote.

The EC's original proposal to contribute €237 million (Sk9.4 billion) to Slovakia in the 2007-2013 period for the closure and decommissioning of V1 was based on wrong data, according to the Slovaks.

The original proposal was calculated on estimates that put the cost of closure and decommissioning of the plant at approximately €750 million. A new analysis prepared by Slovakia's power producer Slovenské elektrárne (SE) puts the cost at €1.3 billion.

Brussels will evaluate the new analysis.
