According to him, similar projects are being prepared, for example, abroad.

The newly founded company wants to bring together experts from the fields of science and spatial planning so that the modular reactor can grow in the Czech Republic.

“Maybe in Ontario and other parts of the world modular reactors are already being prepared and planned for sometime between 2030 and 2032. I know it’s ten years away, but that is an area we have to focus on and we have to be ready to be able to get them here as soon as Put them on the market,” adds Martin Cuba.

Forty-three out of 47 representatives voted in favor of incorporating the company. Three abstained, including Jan Smetka of the ANO movement.

He supports the establishment, but the regional leadership, according to him, has not clarified the strategic plan or future funding.

“South Bohemia is a co-contributor to this sro and I would like to know how much this will cost us in the coming years, who will provide for South Bohemia financially as well as in terms of personnel, what is expected of the region and what the region can get from it. I did not get an answer on These questions, which is why I abstained,” Jan Smetka comments.

The governor, representatives of the exclusive economic zone and the Czech government will present the project in detail and together next week.
