Czech CEZ tenders to expand Temelin nuclear electricity plant

31 Oct 2011 16:42:51 | edem

Czech state-owned power incumbent ČEZ has launched a tender on Monday to double the size of its 2GW Temelín nuclear electricity plant, with bids invited before 2 July 2012.

Last year, ČEZ began looking for a supplier for two proposed additional 1GW units at Temelín, holding talks with Russia's Atomstroyexport, in a consortium with Czech company Skoda JS and Russian firm Gidropress; France's Areva; and Westinghouse from the US (see EDEM 7 October 2010).

Those companies are still competing for the units and should submit their bids by July next year. The winning bidder is expected to be announced by late 2013, with the contract signed by then as well.

ČEZ is planning to build a new 1GW unit by 2022 or 2023, with a second 1GW unit 18 months later.
