Slovakia to get more money for Bohunice shut down

THE EUROPEAN Parliament (EP) approved an increased amount to Slovakia for the decommissioning of the V1 nuclear power plant in Jaslovské Bohunice.

The contribution will be Sk7 billion (€180 million) higher than originally proposed by the European Commission and should reach €400 million (Sk15.6 billion), the daily SME reported.

The EP decision must still be approved by the EU member states.

The total expenditures for the decommissioning of Bohunice are estimated at Sk70 billion (€1.8 billion).
