Nuclear watchdog reviews construction at Mochovce nuclear plant

The Nuclear Supervisory Authority (UJD) said on January 15 that it had begun a review of construction work on reactor blocks 3 and 4 at the Mochovce nuclear power plant. The nuclear power plant holds a building permit, but the operator Slovenské Elektrárne (SE) is fully aware that the nuclear plant in its initial design does not comply with the requirements of nuclear-power legislation, and that it must therefore carry out the changes needed in order to meet safety-related requirements, said UJD chief Marta Šiaková at a news conference. SE's owner Enel has been handing over documentation relating to its efforts to meet all safety requirements at the power plant. TASR
