Idea to building a new nuclear power plant in Slovakia is still alive

A project to build a new nuclear power plant in Jaslovske Bohunice by the JESS company, co-owned by Slovakia’s state-run nuclear decommissioning company, JAVYS, and the Czech energy group CEZ, is still alive and a feasibility study is planned, the SITA newswire reported.

A project to build a new nuclear power plant in Jaslovske Bohunice by the JESS company, co-owned by Slovakia’s state-run nuclear decommissioning company, JAVYS, and the Czech energy group CEZ, is still alive and a feasibility study is planned, the SITA newswire reported.

JAVYS spokesman Dobroslav Dobák told SITA that JESS is currently preparing all materials necessary for a feasibility study. Dobák said the construction of a new nuclear power plant in Slovakia should not be affected by this year's catastrophe at the Fukushima nuclear plant in Japan, whose reactors were damaged after a devastating earthquake and a tsunami, adding that all new findings regarding increasing security are being incorporated into the project.

"It is too early to comment on the impact of events in Japan, but the feasibility study will certainly take into account all such new facts," he said.
