A general framework agreement between the government and state utility ČEZ detailing plans for the construction of a new nuclear power plant at the Dukovany nuclear site in the Czech Republic could be signed within weeks, a ČEZ spokesperson told NucNet.

The spokesperson said in an email that the Czech state will sign a framework agreement with ČEZ which will cover the framework of the project from the announcement of the tender to the start of operation of the new nuclear power plant.

The agreement will define four basic stages in the preparation and construction of the new plant. The first stage covers the tender process, the selection of the technology supplier, zoning permission and site permit. This part of the framework agreement will be detailed in a “first implementation contract”.

“Both the framework agreement and the first implementation contract for the first stage should be signed within a few weeks,” the spokesperson said.
