Rosatom Demands Guarantee From Slovakia On New Unit At Jaslovské Bohunice
Russia’s state-owned nuclear corporation Rosatom has demanded a guarantee on electricity prices from the Slovak government in negotiations over the possible construction of a new nuclear reactor unit on the site of three shut-down reactors at Jaslovské Bohunice.
Negotiations between the Slovak government and Rosatom stalled on 3 July when the Russian company demanded a guarantee on the minimum price of electricity to be produced by the proposed reactor at around 65 euros per megawatt-hour (MWh).
The Slovak economy minister Tomáš Malatinský said it is “not possible” to provide such a guarantee at the moment, and every other member state of the European Union faces a similar problem.
