Visaginas Nuclear Power Plant in Lithuania
Briefing | 13 April 2009
With the planning and preparatory process for the new Visaginas Nuclear Power Plant in Lithuania well underway, a first version of the Environmental Impact Assessment Report has been issued last September. Bankwatch member groups from the Baltic States, participating in the public consultation process of the report, are calling for other than nuclear alternatives and the development of a responsible and sustainable energy sector in the region.
This Issue Paper critically reviews the EIA Report for the Visaginas NPP and points at alternative solutions to compensate the expected capacity cut following the final Ignalina NPP shut-down by the end of this year.
