Slovakia to launch new Mochovce nuclear power unit in Q2 2019 -PM

BRATISLAVA, July 10 (Reuters) - Slovak utility Slovenske Elektrarne plans to put its new unit 3 at the Mochovce nuclear power plant into operation in the second quarter of 2019, Prime Minister Peter Pellegrini said on Tuesday, a small delay to previous estimates.

Pellegrini told a news conference after visiting the plant that the current construction cost estimate of 5.4 billion euros ($6.33 billion) was still valid, although shareholder Enel would provide a 700 million euro loan to meet this.
