The Slovakian utility, Slovenske Elektrarne is 66% owned by the Italian utility Enel. (See Enel for more information)

Before privatisation, Slovenske Elektrarne operated six nuclear reactors (2,640 MWe), and owned a closed gas-cooled heavy water reactor - Bohunice A1. This reactor which was damaged and closed for good after a serious melt-down accident in 1977. Together with the Bohunice V-1 nuclear station, with twin VVER-440/230 reactors that according to the EU Accession Treaty would have to be closed in 2006 and 2008 respectively, Bohunice A1 was kept in state ownership. This left Slovenske Elektrarne with four operating reactors, all VVER 440/213 reactors: Bohunice V2-1 and V2-3 and Mochovce 1 and 2. [1]

Slovenske Elektrarne is a member of the European Atomic Forum (Foratom)
