President Klaus: Temelín expansion rational move

During his visit to the Temelín nuclear power plant in southern Bohemia on Friday, President Václav Klaus said the plant’s expansion was a “rational move”. Mr Klaus also dismissed objections to the planned construction of two new blocks at Temelín, and said all Czechs should appreciate that the plant was an extraordinary achievement of the country’s industry. After visiting the plant, the president praised the state-owned energy firm ČEZ for the preparation of the expansion, and said the company has to make sure the project does not exceed the costs of 300 billion crowns.
