The case concerns the cooling of nuclear reactors in the Mochovce and Jaslovské Bohunice power plants, particularly the technological solution which should prevent any leaks of the melted fuel in case of a serious accident with water circulation, the Aktuality.sk website reported.

The system was delivered by the Inžinierska Výpočtová Spoločnosť Trnava company, which received a patent for it in 2005. The company now claims that SE used its technology without authorisation and has already turned to both courts and police.

“Given the fact that such actions of SE imply, in our opinion, criminal responsibility of authorised people representing this firm, we submitted a criminal complaint,” Peter Kružliak, legal representative of Inžinierska Výpočtová Spoločnosť Trnava, told Aktuality.sk.

Damages caused add up to more than €6 million, according to the website.

The investigation has been confirmed by Police Corps Presidium spokesperson Michal Slivka. SE spokesperson Jana Burdová said that there is a legal dispute between SE and the supplier of the technological solution, but added they do not have any information about criminal prosecution.

“SE paid for the services and will protect its rights by legal means,” Burdová told Aktuality.sk.

The police have already accused six people in the cases concerning the Gabčíkovo hydropower plant and the alleged machinations with financial statements, Aktuality.sk wrote.
