SLOVENSKÉ Elektrárne (SE) completed its overhaul of the second unit of the nuclear power plant Mochovce (EMO) in record time, the SITA newswire reported.

“By phasing in the first turbogenerator, SE completed the planned extended overhaul of the second unit of the Mochovce nuclear power on November 14, an overhaul that lasted only 49.4 days,” the SE spokesperson, Jana Burdová, told SITA. “This extended overhaul was the shortest ever carried out in a nuclear power plant in Slovakia.”

An extended overhaul is a planned activity that takes place in four-year cycles. About 1,500 people worked on the overhaul of the second unit. The first and second units of EMO have an installed capacity of 470 megawatts each.

The first unit has supplied electricity to the grid since the summer of 1998 and the second unit came online at the end of 1999. Each unit in Mochovce annually produces about 3,000 gigawatt hours of electricity which covers nearly 10 percent of the electricity consumption in Slovakia.
