Rosatom is pleased with the completion of the investigation held by the European Commission relating to Paks-2 NPP project.
“Construction of two new units at Paks NPP is an important project of Hungarian-Russian bilateral cooperation and we are glad to proceed to the active stage of its implementation. Advanced Russian Gen 3+ units will be built in Hungary in compliance with post-Fukushima safety requirements and IAEA recommendations. Along with reliable green and affordable energy, the project will also boost national economy development, create new jobs, provide orders for the local industry”, stated Kirill Komarov, First Deputy CEO of Rosatom.
Russian VVER technology is currently one of the most needed in the world, while Rosatom ranks first in NPP construction abroad implementing construction projects for 34 units in 12 countries: in Europe, in the Middle East and North Africa, as well as in the Asia-Pacific Region.
According to the results of 2016, Rosatom’s backlog of foreign orders for ten years exceeds $US133 bln.
The environmental license was obtained for Paks NPP expansion project from the first level authority in 2016, and a request has been made for the construction site license. The main task of the year is to get prepared for the main stage of the new units construction scheduled for 2018.
