Romania steps in Austria vs UK lawsuit on nuclear energy

, News

Romania has stepped in the trial which opposes Austria versus Great Britain and the Chinese company China General Nuclear Power.

Austria has taken a stand against the state aid that the UK has granted to the Chinese company for building a nuclear power plant. The European Commission approved the state aid scheme in October this year.

Romania has a direct interest here, as the country also wants to build a power plant with the same Chinese company, and the only way to do that is to grant a state aid, which must be approved by the European Commission, reports local

The lawsuit takes places at the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU). Romania’s Government has made the decision to intervene in this case at the end of November.

Great Britain has prepared the construction of a nuclear power plant in Hinkley Point, Somerset. The constructor is the French giant EDF, which had concluded a partnership with China General Nuclear Power.
