Temelin moving into higher gear
Operators at the Temelin nuclear power plant are increasing the plant's operation capacity in preparation of a series of new tests. The plant is now working at 10% of its operation capacity and is expected to reach 55% within a matter of days. The current series of tests is to ascertain the result of three months' of repair work on the plant's generating turbine. The plant's re-start has triggered fresh protests in neighbouring Austria but according to an opinion poll conducted in the Czech Republic two thirds of Czechs still support the plant, despite a series of technical glitches.
