Nuclear power plant Mochovce to be finished

Nuclear power plant Mochovce to be finished

EU member states should have the right to their own energy mix and technological neutrality, said Slovak Prime Minister Peter Pellegrini following a meeting of prime ministers of the Visegrad Four (V4) countries (Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Poland and Hungary) and Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz on Thursday. At the same time, the decision by each EU-member state on how it wants to generate electricity should be respected, added Pellegrini.
He assured Kurz at a joint press conference with V4 that the new blocks of the Slovak nuclear power plant Mochovce (Nitra region) are being constructed with respect to maximum safety. "The Slovak Republic will continue to complete this facility because Slovakia wants to meet its commitment to be carbon neutral by 2050. Nuclear energy really plays a very important role for Slovakia," said Pellegrini. However, Austria is fundamentally against nuclear energy. The new Austrian government has committed itself to fighting against the construction of new nuclear units in Europe, using all possible political weapons.
