Slovakia's biggest power producer, Slovenské Elektrárne (SE), is ready to build more nuclear facilities in Slovakia after completing the third and fourth units of the Mochovce nuclear power plant.

"After Mochovce is completed, as soon as further projects are put on the table, we are prepared to participate in them or to initiate them ourselves," the head

of SE’s regulation and market affairs section, Alena Salamonová, told a conference called IIR Power Sector Slovakia 2007 on December 11.

The Economy Ministry is currently working on preparing a new nuclear power station to be built on the site of the V1 Jaslovské Bohunice plant, which is being decommissioned. The new V3 power station is planned to have an output of 1,000 to 1,100 megawatts and cost about €3 billion.

The ministry’s Strategy for Slovakia's Energy Security until 2030 also includes the option of building a nuclear power station in Kecerovce in eastern Slovakia. The plant would have an output of 1,000 to 1,200 megawatts and could be constructed for €3.5 billion.

Some interesting non-nuclear projects are being prepared in eastern Slovakia in the field of power facilities' construction, Salamonová said. According to experts, it is currently impossible to build two nuclear facilities in Slovakia at the same time.
