Bohunice NPP

Bohunice V2 Nuclear Power Plant is located in Western Slovakia near to Trnava. Electricity is generated there in two units with VVER 440/V-213 pressurised water reactors, which were commissioned in 1984 and 1985 respectively.

The V2 power plant changed to combined generation of electricity and heat after building up the centralised heat supply system from Bohunice NPP to Trnava in 1987. Detour from the Trnava heat supply line also heats Leopoldov, Hlohovec and Jaslovské Bohunice.

Since 2000 a modernisation programme amounting to 500 mil. eur was implemented at V2 units, and was completed in 2010 by power increase up to 506 MWe (gross) per unit.
