Russian and Chinese companies will probably not be able to participate in any way in the construction of the new power plant unit in Dukovany. The Chamber of Deputies approved this with amendments to the Senate, which recommended strengthening security guarantees when selecting construction contractors. He also proposed to enact the possibility of parliamentary approval of a contract for the purchase of electricity from a nuclear power plant.
Amendments to the so-called low-carbon law, which will now be signed by the president, result from June agreements between the government and the opposition. The Minister of Industry and Trade Karel Havlíček (ANO) agreed with the changes. According to him, the law is necessary for the future of nuclear energy in the Czech Republic.
The law envisages that the state will not be able to use the offers of companies from Russia or China to complete the Dukovany power plant. It will be possible to use only technologies from suppliers from countries that acceded to the international agreement on government procurement of 1996 for construction. Russia and China are not among these countries. According to the Senate regulation, technologies not dependent on unauthorized suppliers should not be used not only for the construction but also for the maintenance of the new unit.
