German institute deems Temelin safe

Nov. 07, 2000 (Prague Business Journal)à‚–No safety threats have thus far been detected at the Temelin nuclear power plant, according to the German government’s Society for the Safety of Nuclear Facilities and Reactors.

Czech Finance Minister Pavel Mertlik appealed yesterday for a prompt end to Czech-Austrian border blockades by anti-Temelin protesters, saying Austria could soon “receive a bill” for the resulting costs.

Austrian truckers have calculated their daily losses at Kc 23 mln. Meanwhile, the plant announced that output at the first reactor is approaching 5% (Hospodarske Noviny 1, Pravo 2).
