A delegation of the EC will come at the end of March to Romania, to discuss the future reactors 3 and 4 our country wants to build in Cernavoda, the general manager of Nuclearelectrica, Pompiliu Budulan. "The European Commission required technical details about the future reactors we want to build in Cernavoda. Some of the questions will be answered by the specialists from EnergoNuclear and others by the designer AECL. The Canadians in AECL ( Atomic Energy of Canada Limited)are the ones who have the designing licence, on the part of technology, and some questions could be only answered by the, that is why the answers were delayed" Budulan explained for NewsIn. Initially, the EC representatives had to come to Romania in December 2009, the visit was postponed for January 2010 and later for March 2010.

The delegation was formed from the representatives of the General Department for Energy Transport, of the European Commission.

The members of the delegation will get informed about the present situation of units 1 and 2 of the only nuclear power station in Romania.
