The Hungarian Government appoints a representative to coordinate the Paks II project with the European Union
János Süli, Minister for Paks II, is responsible for the design, construction and commissioning of two new power units. From now on, he will also be responsible for project coordination with the European Union, a Hungarian government resolution says.
“It is quite clear, that in many countries nuclear power plants are built to resist climate change. It is very important,” János Süli said in July at Parliament hearings.
Currently 14 nuclear power units are built around the world with Russian-designed VVER‑1200 reactors, similar to projected Paks-II NPP units. The two nuclear power units are now expected to be commissioned in 2026 and 2027 respectively.
