Slovakia’s Nuclear Regulatory Authority said on Wednesday the expected completion of a third block at the Mochovce nuclear power plant had been delayed by a year to November 2017. The fourth block should be finished a year later, in November 2018, the regulator added. The Mochovce plant is run by the country’s biggest electricity producer Slovenske Elektrarne, owned by Italy’s Enel , Czech group EPH, and the Slovak state. The project has faced several delays and cost overruns, partly due to increased security standards following Japan’s Fukushima accident in 2011.
