Mochovce NPP

Chladiace veže AE Mochovce 1&2

In the south of Slovakia, between the towns of Nitra and Levice, there are located four VVER 440/V-213 pressurised water reactors units of the Mochovce NPP. Unit 1 supplies electricity to the power grid since the summer of 1998, and Unit 2 since the late 1999. Their gross power output was up-rated from 440 to 470 MW per each unit. Construction of Units 3 and 4 was suspended in 1992 and re-started in November 2008. Each Mochovce NPP unit generates over 3,000 GWh of electricity annually, which represents approximately 11% of Slovakia's electricity consumption.

Mochovce units are one of the youngest VVER 440/V-213 type units. That's why they benefit from the latest technological improvements that were implemented at the plant. International expert teams have agreed that, once the safety measures are in place, the plant complies with all the international standards and nuclear safety levels, assessing its reliability as extremely high.
