Hungary gets another delivery of Paks fuel by air

Power

Hungary has taken another delivery of fuel rods for the Paks nuclear power plant by air, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Péter Szijjártó said in a post on Facebook on Wednesday, according to a report by state news wire MTI.

The fuel rods were delivered by Volga-Dnepr on a flight that passed over Belarus, Poland, and Slovakia before arriving in Hungary, Szijjártó said.

Hungary got its first air delivery of fuel rods for the Paks plant about two weeks earlier.

Normally, the fuel is delivered by train across Ukraine, but Hungary was forced to find an alternative route because of the war.

The Paks plant accounts for around half of Hungary's electricity generation.
