(SE), in which Italian Enel company holds 66 percent ownrship has to conclude more than 300 contracts within the completion of the third and fourth reactors of the Mochovce Nuclear Power Plant (EMO), said Giancarlo Aquilanti, the director of the EMO 3 and 4 projects. He met with Italian Minister of Economic Development Claudio Scajola who visited Mochovce on July 14, the SITA newswire wrote.
Italian company Enel will complete the 3rd and 4th reactor blocks of the Mochovce nuclear power plant in Nitra region within the planned date, said Giancarlo Aquilanti from SE-EMO, as quoted by the TASR. The 3rd block should be launched into operation in 2012, the fourth one a year later.
“We'll have the nuclear fuel in October 2012,” said Aquilanti. The construction costs will amount to €2.775 billion.
The two blocks with their production capacity of 880 MW will be able to cover 22 percent of Slovakia's electricity consumption. SITA
