Czech Minister Unsure About Nuclear Expansion, Hospodarske Says

Czech Finance Minister Miroslav Kalousek has doubts whether building two new reactors at state-controlled utility CEZ’s Temelin nuclear plant is an “efficient” investment, Hospodarske Noviny reported, citing an interview.

The cost of the project included in the two Temelin tender bids was a “very unpleasant surprise,” Hospodarske quoted Kalousek as saying. Expanding the Temelin nuclear power plant may cost as much as 300 billion koruna ($14.8 billion), the newspaper said, without citing anyone.
