Completion of the third and fourth blocks of the nuclear power plant in Mochovce might cost as much as €5.4 billion admitted Economy Minister Peter Žiga on November 2. This means an increase of €800 million compared with the last budget approved by shareholders of the builder of the facility, Slovenské Elektrárne (SE). In early October Slovenské Elektrárne announced in a letter to the Economy Ministry than they would complete the third block in the summer of 2018 and the fourth block by the summer of 2019, informed state secretary of the Economy Ministry Vojtech Ferencz. The original plan from 2008 was to complete the two blocks for €2.8 billion while the third one should have been complete in 2012 and the fourth one in 2013.
