JEK2 PROJECT

PILLAR OF VISION 3 + 1

With the construction of a second nuclear power plant unit in Krško (JEK2 project), we can make the transition to a low-carbon society a reality.

JEK2 is the pillar of Vision 3 + 1, in which we ensure a stable, cost-competitive and low-carbon grid for the reliable supply of electricity to Slovenia and the broader region through a combination of three low-carbon energy sources (nuclear, hydro and solar).

In July 2021, the Ministry of Infrastructure issued the GEN Group an electricity generation licence for the JEK2 project. This important milestone marks the start of administrative procedures, while public consultations regarding the project can begin. The process of spatial planning will begin based on the proposal to adopt the national spatial plan (NSP). In all phases of the project to date, the GEN Group has ensured transparency and the inclusion of the general public in project activities.
The decision to implement the JEK2 project is expected following the receipt of bids from potential suppliers when the value and financial construction of the project are revealed.
