Nuclear Fund updates strategy

THE NATIONAL Nuclear Fund (NJF) has updated the nuclear decommissioning strategy. It has re-worked the strategy of the so-called ‘back end’ of the nuclear energy cycle, in particular its economic and technical aspect.

THE NATIONAL Nuclear Fund (NJF) has updated the nuclear decommissioning strategy. It has re-worked the strategy of the so-called ‘back end’ of the nuclear energy cycle, in particular its economic and technical aspect.

“The economic part had to be rewritten because of the government regulation dealing with the historical deficit, which was released in late 2010,” reads the updated strategy. “This regulation was approved by the European Commission only at the beginning of this year.”

The historical deficit is set at €2.1 billion, and it was incurred because up until 2006, Slovakia lacked a clear concept of the ‘back end’ of the nuclear energy cycle, i.e. decommissioning and other activities related to nuclear waste, and funds for these activities had not been accumulated in sufficient quantity.

NJF has also implemented into the updated strategy objections of non-governmental organisations. It also reflects the plan to build a brand new nuclear power station in Jaslovské Bohunice and the modernisation of existing nuclear power stations.
