ČEZ puts back Dukovany bids deadline

Czech power giant ČEZ has put back the deadline for final bids to construct a new nuclear unit at Dukovany by almost a month until October 31, a spokesperson said on Tuesday. The move is being made at the request of one of the three firms in the running for the key contract. The new block should be completed by 2036 and the extension of the deadline will not affect the project’s timeline.

The bidders are EDF from France, South Korea’s KHNP and Westinghouse from North America.
