Czech Republic Expanding Nuclear Power Program

Darrell Proctor of Power reports on the Czech Republic’s expansion of nuclear power.

The C3 Take
  • Czech utility CEZ is launching a tender for companies to bid on the construction of new reactors at the country’s two existing nuclear power stations.
  • Nuclear power already provides 36% of the Czech Republic’s electricity.
  • Other European countries like Romania and Poland are also investing heavily in nuclear power and are encouraging innovation within their borders.

“CEZ in May of this year launched a tender to add two generators to the Temelin Nuclear Power Station, a 2,056-MW facility with two VVER-1000 units designed by Russia’s Gidropress. The units came online in 2000 and 2002. CEZ said its wants construction of the new generators at Temelin, representing an investment of about $160 million, to take place between 2028 and 2030. CEZ in March 2022 announced a tender seeking companies to bid on a one-unit expansion of the Dukovany nuclear power plant.”
