Slovakia, through its state-owned company Jadrová a vyraďovacia spoločnosť (hereinafter referred to as “JAVYS”), continued with decommissioning of two V1 nuclear power plant units in Jaslovské Bohunice. By the end of October this year, we spent € 385 million on decommissioning of nuclear power plant units from the Bohunice International Decommissioning Support Fund (BIDSF).
