Stress tests at Paks produce positive results; final report due end-Oct
A report on stress tests at Hungary's Paks Nuclear Power Plant will be completed by October 31, but the tests so far have produced "positive results", the National Atomic Energy Office (OAH) director told MTI on Wednesday.
The stress tests, carried out on all European nuclear power plants on the directive of the European Council, revealed ways the Paks plant's ability to withstand the most extreme conditions can be increased even further, the OAH said.
The Paks plant will present the finalized report to the OAH by October 31. OAH will assess it by December 31, 2011.
