Courtesy ČEZ. The tender for new reactors at the Dukovany plant in the Czech Republic will include a non-binding option for more units at the Temelín plant, the Czech minister of trade and industry, Karel Havlicek, said in an interview with the Právo newspaper.

Mr Havlicek said the government could issue a tender to build another reactor at the Dukovany nuclear power station after the mid-October elections.

He added that if his populist ANO party wins the election “We will also start preparing for Temelín” He said including the possibility of new units at Temelín in the tender Is “a greater motivation for suppliers, and thus we are pushing even harder on the price”.

Czech state power company ČEZ has said it is planning to build one Generation III+ reactor at the Dukovany site, with a maximum installed capacity of 1,200 MW. However, the company filed for permission to build up to two new units. In 2014, ČEZ cancelled the tender for construction of two new Temelín units after it failed to get state guarantees for the project.

Ghana has shown long-standing interest in the civilian uses of nuclear energy. Image courtesy Elliot Brown/Flickr. Five nuclear reactor vendors have responded to a request for interest issued by Ghana to collaborate with the African country in its planned nuclear power programme.

Local press reports, quoting an environment ministry official, did not name any companies, but said the vendors are from the US, Russia, Canada and South Korea.

The official said Ghana is aiming to build and operate commercial nuclear power plants in an effort to ensure affordable energy for industrial development and to help it meet its obligations under the Paris Agreement.

The energy ministry said the country had exhausted its hydro base source of energy, hence the need to explore other clean options such as nuclear power.
