France’s EDF wants to invest in new nuclear plant in Lithuania



VILNIUS (AFX) – French energy giant Electricite de France (EDF) would consider investing in a new nuclear power plant in Lithuania if offered, a senior executive said.

‘The decision to build a new, modern atomic power plant is very important and forward-looking,’ Bruno Lescoeur, EDF senior executive vice president for international businesses, said during a meeting with Lithuanian economy minister Vytas Navickas yesterday.

Navickas said that the ministry is currently starting the drafting of a law on the construction of a new atomic power plant and intends to submit the bill to the parliament in March.

He added Lithuania would appreciate if the French company shared its experience in preparing such legislation.
