Enel: Slovak nuclear power plants operating at near full capacity

The Italian energy group Enel – that owns also the Slovak Slovenské Elektrárne energy company sold a total of 295.5 TWh of electric power to its clients (213.2 TWh out of that abroad), which is 6.7 percent less than the year before. It also produced less energy last year. This was caused by smaller demand in Italy, France and the Pyrenean Peninsula, official said March 12.

However, the Enel CEO Fulvio Conti stressed – as quoted by the TASR newswire – that the two Slovak nuclear power plants worked at 94 percent capacity and he deemed this a world record, according to a global comparison of performance according to a so-called Load Factor. Thermal power plants had a share of 53.3 percent in the production of electric power, and renewable resources (i.e.from water, wind, biomass, solar, etc.) that of 32.6 percent; and 14.2 percent was produced by nuclear plants.
