6) What is the subject of the proposed activity?

The proposed activity includes the construction of one Pressurized Water Reactor unit (PWR) of generation III+ with net electric output power up to 1700 MWe in the Jaslovské Bohunice site including all related areas, civil structures and technology equipment. The activity includes the power plant unit and its infrastructure (via electricity grid and water management) connection. The proposed activity also provides solution for the generally accepted demand for this type of power plant (as a nuclear power plant) expressed in the relevant strategic documents of the Slovak Republic - The Energy Policy of SR 2014. 

The new nuclear power plant in the Jaslovské Bohunice site with the declared installed capacity is in accordance with the Government Decision No. 948/2008, with the Energy Policy of SR 2014 and with the Land Use Planning Documentation of Trnava Self-Governing Region 2014. At the same time, the requirements for of the Scope of the Assessment are respected for elaboration of the assessment of the proposed activity for the variant “one reactor unit with pressurized water reactor of generation III+ with maximal net installed output power up to 1700 MWe” . 

From the point of view of the technology solution, only the source with pressurized water reactor of the generation III+ is considered. This type represents the best available up-to-date technology, with a number of safety advantages as well as long-term operational experience with this type in the conditions of the Slovak Republic On the basis of the approved strategic documents of SR, there is no other realistic variant solution available for new nuclear power plant in the Jaslovské Bohunice site than the proposed one; it means neither another site nor another technology. This fact was confirmed also by the standpoint of the Ministry issued in relation to the application for refraining from variant solution.

In accordance with the requirements of the Act on environmental impact assessment so called zero variant, it means the variant that the proposed activity would not be realized, is also considered in the EIA process for the new nuclear power plant in the Jaslovské Bohunice site.

The operational lifetime of the power plant will be 60 years. The project will be designed in order to assure fulfillment of all relevant legislative regulations and safety standards and in accordance with regulations and requirements of ÚJD SR, IAEA a WENRA in the course of the whole lifetime cycle of the power plant.
