The Russian-Czech consortium MIR.1200 will file a bid on July 2 for a tender to complete construction of the Temelin nuclear power plant in the Czech Republic, an official of Russian state-run civilian nuclear power corporation Rosatom said on Thursday.
“The date has been defined and the application will be filed on July 2,” Rosatom Deputy General Director Kirill Komarov said on the sidelines of the St. Petersburg economic forum.
The Temelin nuclear power plant went into commercial operation in 2002, more than twenty years after the former Soviet Union and the Czechoslovak government signed an agreement on its construction in 1981.
The plant currently operates two units with an aggregate capacity of 2,000 MW. The Czech government plans to build another two reactors at the plant.
