SLOVAKIA will ask the European Commission for more money to close the V1 nuclear power plant in Jaslovské Bohunice on time, 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 proposal was calculated on estimates that put the cost of closure and decommissioning of the plant at approximately €750 million.
