In the Czech Republic is debating the construction of a new unit of the nuclear power plant Dukovany. To date, this Czech NPP operates 4 nuclear power plant with a total capacity of 2,000 MW. All the reactors are Soviet – type VVER-440. NPP Dukovany generates up to a quarter of the total consumption in the Czech Republic electricity.
Today in the Czech Republic about this plant there is a serious dispute. Some forces claim that you need to follow the example of Germany and France and begin to abandon nuclear energy. Others believe that the Czech economy would be a fatal blow to close the station. Those who belongs to the second group, I consider it appropriate to expand electricity production at NPP Dukovany with the fifth power and phase out old reactors. But here, the dispute arises: if you begin construction of the 5th AB, then who can be trusted?
Earlier, the President of the Czech Republic Milos Zeman said about what should follow the example of Hungary and to entrust the construction of a new unit of Rosatom. Russian company we will remind, building of the Hungarian Paks NPP-2.
Czech newspaper Aktualne publishes material authored by Helena and Lukas Truly of Vilaseca, which States:
The article notes that the Czech government does not intend to go the Hungarian way and grant the right to build a new unit without a tender. It is noted that the chances of winning the tender can be like Russia, for example, and China.
While stating that the final decision in the framework of the tender will be announced in 2022. The authors complain that by the time Milos Zeman will continue to be President of the country.

Further in the Czech edition write:
At the same time, the article includes the statement of the representatives of the Hungarian energy industry.
