Three bidders included in security assessment process for Dukovany tender

The power utility ČEZ has sent three bidders to expand the Dukovany nuclear power plant papers for the security assessment process that precedes the official launch of the tender.

They are the French firm EdF, the US Westinghouse and South Korea’s KHNP. Russia’s Rosatom and China’s CGN have been excluded from the tender for security reasons.

The security assessment process should be concluded by the end of November. The official launch of the tender is expected toward the end of the year, after a new government takes office following a general election in October.
