The Czech Republic’s state-owned utility ČEZ filed for permission with the State Office for Nuclear Safety on Wednesday 25 March to build two new nuclear power plants at the existing Dukovany site in the southeast of the country.

The announcement follows approval by the Ministry of Environmental Protection in September 2019 of an environmental impact assessment for the construction of the two plants. The ministry said the approval was for up to 2,400 MW of new capacity.

ČEZ said the filing concludes a five-year preparation process. The company gave no details of possible reactor technology, but said each plant would have a single pressurised water reactor of electrical power up to 1,200 MW.
