Czech companies will earn over €450 million based on contracts concluded to date, while German firms and Italian firms are set to earn €138 and €82 million respectively. Slovenské Elektrárne also concluded contracts with companies from the UK and the US.

According to Ruzzini, the completion of the third and fourth units of EMO continues in line with plans. It should cost a total of €2.775 billion. The project is expected to be completed by 2013.
