International Power to Battle French for Cez

Oct. 16, 2000 (Prague Business Journal)à‚–Electricite de France (EdF) is likely to compete with British-American International Power (until recently National Power) in the upcoming privatization of energy giant CEZ and six regional energy distributors, Deputy Finance Minister Jan Mladek said.

Temelàƒ­n nuclear power plant included in the package. Mladek added that the interest of French state-owned EdF offered “a nuclear umbrella” against anti-Temelàƒ­n protests in Austria.

International Power does not operate a nuclear power plant but is said to be teaming up with an American group strong in nuclear power production, Mladek said (Prague Business Journal 1).
