Areva Failed to Comply with Public Contract Requirements Defined for Building Temelín NPP Units 3 and 4; ČEZ Had to Disqualify This Bidder
ČEZ has today informed Areva that they have in their bid failed to meet statutory requirements for building two new units of the Temelín Nuclear Power Plant. Moreover, Areva has not fulfilled some other crucial criteria defined in the tender. Since the award procedure has been conducted in accordance with the Public Procurement Act, Areva’s bid had to be excluded from further evaluation.
ČEZ has informed Areva in detail about the specific grounds for excluding their bid; the reasons are of both commercial and legislative nature and concern crucial requirements. Since the bidder has a right to object to this decision, the public may be informed about the specific reasons only when all options for potential appeals have been used so that the award procedure is conducted in a correct and fair manner.
Other bidders have not yet been found to have failed to fulfill the awarding entity's requirements.
