Construction started on the Mochovce Nuclear Power Plant in the 1980s but was subsequently stopped due to financial concerns. The project restarted in the 1990s and the first two towers (2 x 470MW) were finished and brought on-line in 1998 and 1999. The next two towers are currently under construction (planned to be brought into operation in 2013/2014) but are facing a delay. The Slovak government insists in pursuing this project despite old technology and several security concerns.09/05/2012
