Slovak and Czech experts will intensify cooperation in the field of solving issues connected with lifetime of nuclear facilities and reducing waste volumes in nuclear power plants, also using the knowledge of company JAVYS from the decommissioning activities in nuclear facilities in Slovakia. It results from the Memorandum of Cooperation signed between JAVYS, a.s. and ČEZ.
Slovakia and the Czech Republic, like many other countries, have expressed their interest in the nuclear power industry development with regard to climate protection and stability of power supplies. The main subject of the newly concluded Memorandum of Cooperation, signed between the two nuclear companies on 3 February 2022, is the extensive exchange of experience and information regarding their activities and projects, especially in the field of waste volume reduction in nuclear facilities or in management and lifetime assessment of facilities. In practice, this should mean, above all, the exchange of technical and operational analyses and data, or the continuation of specific projects.
Pavol Štuller, Chairman of the Board of Directors and CEO of company JAVYS, a. s.
"Assessing the state of technologies is one of the most important issues that most nuclear operators currently tackle. This is an absolutely necessary condition for the operation of the nuclear power plants on which their future is based. And considering the plans of both countries, we are glad that we are further expanding our cooperation. "
Bohdan Zronek, Member of the Board of Directors and Chief Nuclear Officer of ČEZ Group.
"JAVYS is a company we have been cooperating with for a long time also in a joint venture – company JESS, a.s., (Jadrová energetická spoločnosť Slovenska, a.s.) and which has vast experience both with waste processing and with the design and assessment of the condition of important equipment and systems in nuclear power plants. This is connected with the issues of lifetime management and ensuring the long-term operation. Therefore, further strengthening of this cooperation is quite logical. "
The Czech energy company will soon be reaching the milestone of 60 years of operation of both emission-free nuclear power plants Dukovany and Temelín and assesses the aspects of long-term operation every year. Both the price of electricity and condition of key components play an important role in emphasizing safe, emission-free production. In both cases, companies will focus on reducing the waste volumes in line with their commitments to sustainability.
