On July 28, the economic daily Hospodárske Noviny (HN) wrote that the Russian state-run corporation TVEL has not yet made a final decision on the location of its first foreign production plant for nuclear fuel.

The company confirmed to HN recently that Ukraine, the Czech Republic and Slovakia are in the running. Slovakia remains among the candidates because of its existing and planned nuclear reactors, its long-term contract for nuclear fuel supplies and the country’s experience in installing fuel assemblies carried out by the ZŤS Dubnica engineering company in the A1 nuclear power plant in Jaslovské Bohunice, the newspaper writes.
