CEZ Plans Record Output at Its Two Nuclear Plants in 2012, 2013

CEZ AS (CEZ), the Czech Republic’s largest power producer, said its Temelin and Dukovany nuclear power plants will produce a record amount of electricity this year and plan to increase output further next year.

The Temelin nuclear power plant will produce 15 terawatt- hours this year and Dukovany’s output may reach 16 terawatt- hours, Vladimir Hlavinka, CEZ’s board member and director of the production division, said at a press conference in Prague today.

The two plants produce 43 percent of CEZ’s total electricity, the company said. Maintenance at Dukovany may be a couple of days longer next year as the plant prepares to have its 10-year operation license renewed, Hlavinka said.
