Country report

The Czech uranium mine Dolni Rozinka shall continue operating with a capacity of 150-200 tU until 2016.

The updated state energy policy has been subjected to a strategic environmental assessment process and is now being discussed in government.

In 2014, both NPPs in the Czech Republic continued in a steady state of operational performance. After the finalised upgrade of four units at the Dukovany NPP to 510 megawatts-electric (MWe) gross each in 2012, an upgrade of the Temelin units began in 2013, which will result in an increase in the capacity of each block to 1 078 MWe gross in 2015.

Since the last report in 2014, the following basic assumptions and changes in projections of the long-term nuclear generation capacities and fuel needs have been incorporated:

These changes will mean that a typical fuel reload on 36 fuel assemblies will be stabilised.
