Councilors from the region of Vysočina have signed a document supporting the addition of a new – fifth – reactor at the nuclear power plant in Dukovany, which they see as an important source of new jobs and a boost to the quality of life in the region. The governor of the region, Jiří Běhounek, said he had already discussed the matter with both representatives of the Czech energy giant ČEZ, which runs the plant, and government representatives. Dukovany, older than the only other Czech nuclear power plant Temelín, faces routine tests in September by a team of specialists from WANO. The last such tests were five years ago.
