Paks power plant passes stress tests
The Paks Nuclear Power Plant, Hungary’s sole source of commercial atomic energy, has passed its stress tests, National Atomic Energy Agency (OAH) deputy director Gyula Fichtinger said at a press conference on Friday.
The OAH established in its National Report on the stress tests submitted to the European Commission that the plant is safe and no immediate measures are required, Mr Fichtinger said.
Safety levels can always be raised further, but there is no need for immediate intervention, he added.
The stress tests were carried out on all European nuclear power plants on the directive of the European Council. The EU’s assessment of the report is expected in April.
