In the Czech Republic, the construction of a new power unit of the Dukovany nuclear power plant is being discussed. Today, this Czech nuclear power plant operates 4 nuclear power units with a total capacity of up to 2000 MW. All reactors are Soviet, type VVER-440. Dukovany NPP generates up to a quarter of all electricity consumed in the Czech Republic.

Today in the Czech Republic there is a serious debate over this nuclear power plant. Some forces claim that it is necessary to follow the example of Germany and France and begin to abandon nuclear energy. Others believe that it will be an irreparable blow to the Czech economy to close the station. Those who belong to the second group consider it expedient to expand the generation of electricity at the Dukovany NPP with the help of the fifth power unit and phase out the old versions of the reactors. But here a dispute arises: if you begin the construction of the 5th EB, then whom can it be trusted?

Earlier, Czech President Milos Zeman said that it was worth following the example of Hungary and entrusting the construction of a new power unit to Rosatom. The Russian company, recall, is building the Hungarian Paks-2 nuclear power plant.

The Czech edition of Aktualne publishes material authored by Helena Truhla and Lukasz Valaszek, which states:

If the nuclear power plant is fully equipped with Rosatom, like Hungary, the Russians will have a decisive influence on the Czech state. And this is at a time when relations between the two countries are strained.

The article notes that the Czech government does not intend to follow the Hungarian route and grant the right to build a new power unit without a tender. It is noted that the chances of winning the tender may be both in Russia, and, for example, in China.

While it is said that the final decision in the tender will be announced in 2022. At the same time, the authors complain that by that time Milos Zeman will continue to remain the president of the country.

From the article:

He has a mandate until 2023, and he is a supporter of Russia.

Further in the Czech edition they write:

According to security officials, another option currently being considered by the Czech Republic is to prevent the troubled Russian applicant from gaining access to contracts for one of the base systems of the power plant. However, sources from the security community indicate that even if the Czech Republic does not allow Russians into key power plant systems, they will keep the country's energy future in their hands - as a general contractor.

At the same time, the material contains a statement by representatives of the Hungarian energy industry. They note that they have followed a simple path: the country needs low-cost electricity, and Rosatom has vast experience in building nuclear power plants, which is why Rosatom was chosen as the implementer of a large-scale project.

    Cunningly made Czechs. The decisive influence is a myth. It seems to me that participating in the tender does not make much sense to cheapen the project for the sake of the mythical influence on the Czechs. Let them pay the market value.

      Everything goes to the point that Russia will soon be an energy superpower.
      While our dull oppositionists are crying here, Russia is taking control of the energy of some countries (and somewhere already)

      In Turkey, nuclear power plants are also not built for beautiful eyes. And not even money here is the main profit

      Nord Stream 2 (in total with 1 stream) - in addition to money, it also takes control of the energy of the EU locomotive

        Well, all the same, when the issues of building a nuclear power plant in the Czech Republic are decided precisely by nuclear professionals, and not politically paid and far-off profane idiots.

          Agree with you. Reliability and safety of the nuclear unit of a nuclear power plant is Worth it!
          However, as far as I am personally concerned, I would not have become involved in the construction of a nuclear power plant in the Czech Republic at the place of Russia. And that's why:

          1. The Czech Republic is under the external control of the United States. The Czech Republic is a strong component of NATO and the European Union. "
          2. In the Czech Republic Oct 21 2017 in parliamentary elections the ULTRA-ANO movement defeated ("The action of dissatisfied citizens") billionaire Andrei Babish with a purely pro-American orientation. 1,5 million Czechs out of 8 million who voted voted for him. And these ultra-right, under the patronage of Washington, are gaining power in Prague - and in particular it was they who demolished the monument to Marshal Konev in Prague-6!
          3. T.O. President of the Czech Republic Milos Zeman sits in power on almost 2 chairs and according to the principle "both ours and yours."
          4. In addition. Czech Republic during WWII and WWII was not just an ally of Nazi Germany, but was precisely the arsenal of weapons for the Third Reich - its defense industry plants stopped only on May 5, 1945.

          TOTAL A pragmatic question naturally arises.
          Why would Russia’s Rosatom, in such an anti-Russian political situation in the Czech Republic, build a new nuclear unit for the Czech nuclear power plant and thereby raise the Czech Republic’s hostile economy for the Russian Federation?
          Few Russia stepped on the same rake ?!

        Strange some optimism you have.
        For example, in Turkey, your optimism does not go into any gates!
        How can one get so wrong in politics ?!

        Firstly. Turkey resumed construction of Akkuyu NPP (in the lane - “The White Well”) - after the meeting of Recep Erdogan with Vladimir Putin.
        The atomic power station will be built by Rosatom Corporation for the Russian money - to create a station Ankara received a loan of $ 20 billion dollars for a period of 30 years.
        The question naturally arises: and who will repay this atomic debt in 2040? And for what such credit somersaults are necessary? Moreover, in Turkey itself, not everyone is happy about the imminent appearance of a nuclear power plant.

        Secondly. As for the Turkish Stream, then Turkish companies have already owed $ 2 billion to Russia for gas and are in no hurry to give them away!

      I do not agree. Countries such as the Czech Republic, Hungary, and other Romania, due to historical, political, economic and other factors, will always be under someone's "decisive influence." Friends need to be carefully chosen. I frankly do not understand the Czechs, who are selflessly ruining relations with Russia. China and America are far away, and making friends in such cases is more profitable with a neighbor than with a "guy from another city." Moreover, China and the States, those are still friends, you need to keep an eye on them.

    "And this is at a time when relations between the two countries are strained." So the relationship is strained through the fault of the Czech side. They removed and removed a tank-monument to the liberators of Czechoslovakia in Prague IS-2, removed a monument to And S Konev, which provoked a response from Russia. Many countries of the world are NOT AFRAID of Russia's decisive influence because they understand that Russia is not the United States. And many more countries where Russia is building nuclear power plants understand this.
    "... the final decision within the framework of the tender will be announced in 2022." At the moment, only Russia has the technology to build power units with fast neutron reactors. Come on, Czechs, with Russophobia and you will be happy.

    Well, now the reason for all these Russophobic provocations with monuments in the Czech Republic is understandable.

    The pro-Western devils in the Czech Republic in this way simply do not want to allow cooperation between Russia and the Czech Republic in nuclear energy, therefore they exacerbate relations wherever possible. We bought some fool from the region, and he is glad to try.
