Modernization Project Start at Mochovce NPP (Slovakia)
On 15 August, Slovenské elektrárne shut down one of the two turbine generators at Mochovce NPP Unit 2, and after it cooled down, the Company started to dismantle the high-pressure and low-pressure parts of the turbine.
This operation kicked off the most important part of the large and demanding modernization project to increase the nuclear power plant units’ efficiency.
The work shall result in approximately 7% increase in the electrical power of both operating Mochovce NPP units – from 471 MWe to 500 MWe.
Combined, the output will grow from 942 to 1000 MWe.
First, Slovenské elektrárne will increase the output of Mochovce 2, which shall supply more electricity to the grid from November.
In the spring of 2021, the project will also be completed at the Mochovce-1.
