October 05, 2012
In context of the utility CEZ’s announcement today with regard to AREVA's participation in the tender for two nuclear reactors on the Temelin site, AREVA will file an objection according to the rules stipulated in the tender conditions.
AREVA is determined to understand the reasons for this announcement. AREVA firmly believes it has met all the tender criteria.
The group is confident its offer to CEZ is the most competitive one and its commitment to the Temelin completion project remains absolute.
Tender for the construction of two reactors at Temelin opened in August 2009, and by July 2012 three bids had been submitted to the organizer, national electricity company ČEZ.
The projected calendar would have seen the winner of the contract announced at the end of 2013, and active commissioning of the reactors between 2020 and 2025.
