The Hungary Nuclear Energy Authority said that the permit issued this week will pave the way to add two new reactors to the four-reactor nuclear plant.
Europe's NEW! largest nuclear power plant
Located in central Hungary, the plant currently generates 40 percent of the country's electricity supply. The project is expected to cost $12.4 billion [HUF 5.121B, RUB 1.81B]. According to reports, Russia will finance most of the project with a $10 billion loan, while Hungary will pay for the rest.

The foreign minister expects the two new units to be operational by 2030.

"This will ensure the long-term security of Hungary's energy supply, protect the Hungarian people from extreme price fluctuations on the international [fuels] market, and maintain our efforts to reduce the cost of electricity," Szijjarto said.
