Slovenske Elektrarne revived the control room at the third nuclear block in Mochovce. The head of SE Nicola Cotugno says that the company has thus fulfilled its commitment to finish the third and fourth block of Mochovce power plant under schedule.
The completion of the third and fourth blocks at Mochovce NPP has reached the next milestone. Slovenske Elektrarne (SE) responsible for the completion of nuclear blocks in Mochovce has put the new control room at the third block, also called the brain of the power plant, into operation. The chairman of Slovenske Elektrarne’s board of directors, Nicola Cotugno, informed at the meeting with journalists that the third block thus entered the testing phase. The third block is 90% complete, while the entire project 84%. According to the Slovak dominant electricity producer, construction works accelerated markedly over ten months of this year and the number of construction workers has increased by roughly 20 % from almost 4,000 in 2014 to roughly 4,800 this year. Slovenske Elektrarne estimates that the completion of nuclear blocks contributes to creation of approximately 10,000 direct and indirect jobs.
