The first Temelín Unit produces electricity again. It has been shut down for two months to inspect and replace fuel assemblies

Yesterday in the evening, the Unit 1 of Temelín NPP started to produce electricity again. Operators have connected it to the transmission system after replacing a quarter of the fuel assemblies. Power engineers also checked the safety systems the turbine an its generator. In total, they managed almost twenty thousand activities during the shutdown, including 66 investment actions. Together with the Dukovany power plant, all six nuclear units are currently in operation. The Unit 2 of the Dukovany Nuclear Power Plant is now planned to be shut down for the inspection and refueling.

ČEZ Group develops unique solution for securing photovoltaic panels in unstable subsoil

The central sections of conveyor belts in strip coal mines could serve as structures for carrying photovoltaic power plants in the future. Normally, these structures are bored into the ground; however, the common solution cannot be used in areas with unstable subsoil, such as spoil heaps, waste ponds, and other unfirm areas. Engineers from PRODECO, a company from the ČEZ Group, have been developing prototypes that are able to cope with moving soil. Moreover, retired mining equipment could get a second life and a new purpose. In pursuing its vision of Clean Energy for Tomorrow, ČEZ Group will build new photovoltaic power plants with a capacity of thousands of MWs by 2030.
