But it could be earlier if price crisis continues

(ANSA) - BELGRADE, DEC 21 - Slovenia will make a final investment decision on the construction of a second unit at the Krsko nuclear power plant by 2027, the specialised portal SeeNews reported, quoting information from local media. However, "if things get tighter in the market, we will be under pressure to make that decision tomorrow," said Danijel Levicar, Chief Operating Officer of the Slovenian state-run energy group Gen-Energija. Levicar noted that a new reactor at Krsko "would significantly ease electricity prices." Krsko. co-owned by Gen-Energija and Croatia's Hrvatska elektroprivreda, currently covers 40% of the Slovenian energy production. This year, Ljubljana "issued an energy permit for the construction of a second reactor unit at Krsko, clearing the way for the implementation of administrative procedures and preparation of documentation for investment decision-making on the project," SeeNews recalled.
