Czech project with Russian design
The subject of the public tender on Temelín NPP completion are design, documentation, engineering, equipment manufacturing, procurement, construction, site installation, testing and commissioning of two complete NPP units (Unit 3 and 4) in the form of EPC turn-key supply, including fuel assemblies.
Both units shall have the same design - with the concept of presurized light-water reactor (PWR). The net electric output of each unit is to exceed 1.000 MWe.
A part of the order is the contracting entity’s right of option for construction of up to three additional nuclear units in other potential locations in Europe by same supplier.
The anticipated commissioning of the third and fourth unit in Temelín is expected by 2025.
MIR.1200 represents an evolutionary design, coming out of well proven solutions with increased safety. It is a unique combination of state-of-the-art active and passive safety systems, which makes it one of the best representants of the Generation III+ reactors.
International consortium led by the ŠKODA JS
On October 14th, 2009, an agreement on establishment of international consortium consisting of three companies - ŠKODA JS a.s., ZAO "Atomstroyexport" and OAO OKB "Gidropress", was concluded.
The Consortium members mutually complement and cover in a needed extent a large spectrum of activities necessary for the construction of modern, economic and fully licenceable nuclear power plant, with the purpose of:
- taking the best advantage of research and development in the field of nuclear technologies,
- taking the best advantage of the existing experience with the construction of 10 new nuclear sources in Russia, China an Slovakia,
- taking the advantage of the potential of Czech and Slovak nuclear power industry manufacturers and suppliers, as well as of Western suppliers of instrumentation and control system for nuclear facility.
