Greenpeace lodges complaint with EC over new Slovak nuclear plant

Environmental organisation Greenpeace told the TASR newswire on May 25 that it has lodged a complaint with the European Commission against Slovakia over the way that the government selected a strategic partner to build a new reactor at the nuclear power station in Jaslovské Bohunice. According to Greenpeace, the Slovak government did not comply with the European Parliament and the European Council’s Guideline 2004/17/ES from March 31, 2004 on procurements in the areas of water-management, energy, transport and postal services when the Slovak state-owned JAVYS company selected Czech energy company ČEZ to jointly build the reactor without inviting tenders for the contract.
