Shareholders in the joint company - JAVYS and the Czech energy firm CEZ - thus have an avenue to carry out the project, with a joint venture concern to be set up this month. A feasibility study for the project itself is to be done next year.

The European Commission announced on Wednesday, November 4, its approval for the proposed setting up of a joint venture called Nuclear Energy Company of Slovakia (JESS), which will be run by JAVYS and CEZ. Brussels gave the green light to the project upon concluding that competition will not be impeded either in the EU as a whole or in any part of the EU. TASR
