Energy permit issued for second unit of Krško nuclear power station

Ljubljana, 19 July - The Infrastructure Ministry has issued the energy permit for the construction of the second unit of the Krško nuclear power station, a step that allows permitting procedures to begin and comes a week after the national climate strategy enshrined nuclear as a long-term energy option. The project will be managed by the state-owned Gen Energija.
