Weekly Review of Slovene Economy from 26 July through 1 August
Ljubljana, 2 August - The Slovene Economics Ministry tasked Wednesday ELES, the Slovene electricity company, to take all the necessary measures to stop supplying Croatia with Krsko Nuclear Plant-made electricity. The decision was taken after the Croatian side showed no interest in paying the outstanding debt incurred by the Croatian electric power concern HEP for Krsko-generated electric power. The debt for this year alone amounts to SIT 2.4 billion. Gradually, ELES started reducing the power supply from the Krsko Plant to Croatia at noon on Thursday. It disconnected two 400kV transmission lines to Croatia (Krsko - Zagreb 1 and Krsko - Zagreb 2). On Friday, Slovene and Croatian officials held a meeting at Otocec, 150 km southeast of Ljubljana, to discuss Croatia's Krsko-related debt. Located in Slovenia, Krsko N-Plant, built in the 80s when Slovenia and Croatia were part of the former Yugoslavia, is jointly owned by both nations.
