Czech car maker TPCA expects 20% fall in production next year

Czech power group CEZ, which is in the process of selecting a supplier for two new reactors at its Temelin nuclear plant, will likely today (Oct 30) file an official request with the State Nuclear Safety Authority (SUJB) for the construction of the new units, CTK news agency reported citing SUJB spokeswoman Dana Drabova as saying in parliament. CEZ, majority owned by the state, wants to announce the tender winner by September 2013 and have the two reactors running by 2015. Currently only two bidders are competing for the project valued at some USD 10bn. US Westinghouse and a Russian-Czech consortium of Atomstroyexport, Skoda JS and Gidropress. French Areva also filed an offer but CEZ disqualified it in early October saying it failed to meet requirements of the tender. Areva filled an appeal with the Czech anti-monopoly body UOHS, which ruled earlier this month that CEZ is banned from signing a deal with the potential winner while it considers Areva's appeal.
