The two blocks at the Nováky thermal power plant (ENO) in Zemianske Kostolany that were shut down due to a fire on January 11 will be out of service for approximately 21 days, said Prime Minister Robert Fico on January 12.

Economy Ministry State Secretary Peter Ziga stressed that the fire at the power plant will not cause any reductions in heating and electricity supplies, news wire TASR wrote.

The power normally produced by these blocks, with a capacity of 110 megawatts each, has been replaced by another block at Novaky and by a block at the Vojany power plant in the Kosice region.

Slovakia's electricity generator, Slovenské Elektrárne, has given assurances that it will supply the amount of electricity that has been agreed with the electricity-grid operator. There is still one more block at Vojany in reserve if more energy is needed. TASR
