Slovene Nuclear Power Plant Safe from Earthquakes
Ljubljana, 25 November - Results of the Phare geophysical and geological research in the area of the Krsko-based nuclear power plant (NEK) was presented on Saturday in the Slovene capital of Ljubljana by the Slovene Geological Institute. According to the latest results the Krsko basin is not a tectonic dike with faults on the north and south side, but a dish-like structure with some minor joints, which do not cut through the newer geological layers.

According to the research data these parameters are not questionable.
