Hungary will study extending the life of Paks nuclear power plant

Technology and Industry Minister Laszlo Palkovics said late on Wednesday that Hungary plans to extend the life of the Paks nuclear power plant and will conduct a cost and feasibility assessment next month.

Palkovics said the plant "can add 20 years of service" and that his department would draft a proposal to the government by July 15.

Paks currently has four Russian-made VVER 440 small reactors, with a total capacity of about 2,000 MEGAwatts, built between 1982 and 1987.
