Péter Szijjártó, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade, is closing his discussion today on the timeframe for the upgrade of Hungary’s sole nuclear plant at Paks with executives of Rosatom, the general contractor for the project.
“With the two new reactors at the Paks power plant, becoming self-sufficient in electricity supply will become a reality by the end of the decade,” Minister Szijjártó said in a post on Facebook. “The timeframe for the fast-paced work required to achieve this is the subject of talks: with Rosatom CEO Alexey Likhachev today, and with Rosatom deputy-CEO and Atomstroyexport chairman Alexander Lokshin tomorrow,” he added. “A number of permits must still be submitted for the investment to enter the implementation phase from May,” Minister Szijjártó said.
