The Economy Ministry is preparing the conditions for launching an international tender for the construction of the fifth block of the Jaslovské Bohunice (Trnava region) nuclear plant, Economy Minister Ľubomír Jahnátek reported on January 21.

After the session of the third inter-ministerial commission formed by representatives of the Slovak and Czech economy ministries, Jahnátek said that the Slovak Government wants to officially declare its intention to complete the plant's fifth block this year.

Specialized studies are currently being carried out. It's not yet clear whether construction of two blocks with an output of 600 megawatts each or one 1,100-megawatt block is preferred. (Two of the four blocks at Bohunice have recently been decommissioned and the other two are also scheduled for decommissioning in the near future due to their age - ed. note). TASR
