Slovakia has been increasing safety of its nuclear power plants

Slovakia continues to constantly work on increasing the operational safety of its nuclear power plants, said Nuclear Supervisory Office (ÚJD) chair Marta Žiaková at an international conference on nuclear safety on Friday, March 15 in Bratislava. The event is being organised by ÚJD and the Japanese Embassy in Slovakia to mark two years since the March 11 nuclear disaster at Japan's Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant.

Slovakia continues to constantly work on increasing the operational safety of its nuclear power plants, said Nuclear Supervisory Office (ÚJD) chair Marta Žiaková at an international conference on nuclear safety on Friday, March 15 in Bratislava. The event is being organised by ÚJD and the Japanese Embassy in Slovakia to mark two years since the March 11 nuclear disaster at Japan's Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant.

"The framework of sustained increases in the safety of nuclear power plants has been set and is being observed," said the chairperson, as quoted by the TASR newswire. "Safety standards in Slovakia are at the highest possible level as far as nuclear blocks are concerned,” Žiaková said, adding that the greatest deal of work in terms of boosting safety standards in Slovakia's nuclear power plants was done in the 1990s. As she further revealed, the running of the two Slovak nuclear plants in Jaslovské Bohunice and Mochovce has been conditioned by the implementation of technical specifications aimed at achieving the capacity of a plant to appropriately handle even large-scale disasters.
