Implementation License Issued for Paks II

Power

The National Atomic Energy Office (OAH) has issued the implementation license for the expansion of the Paks nuclear power plant, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Péter Szijjártó said in a video message on Facebook on Friday.

Acquiring the "most crucial" permit for the construction of two more blocks at the plant is "an important milestone", Szijjártó said.

He noted that Hungarian and international experts had scrutinized the over 400,000-page application for the license before "giving the all-clear".

"The implementation licence certifies that the construction of the new Paks blocks complies with the highest level and strictest Hungarian and international regulations and requirements," he added.

The target for putting the two new blocks online by 2030 "remains realistic", he said.

The construction of the new blocks will ensure Hungary's energy security in the long term, protecting Hungarians from price fluctuations on global markets and allowing the government to maintain the system of regulated utility prices, he added.
