The launch of CEZ’s Temelin plant’s first block continued this morning with the first nuclear reaction reported. The load of the plant will be gradually increased now, and non-commercial testing will continue for several months. Temelin should begin supplying commercial power in May 2001. Separately, CEZ CEO Jaroslav Mil yesterday said that CEZ hopes to sell its huge Prague headquarters for up to CZK 4 bil. (USD 100 mil.), and that its new HQ could cost only 10-15% of this amount. The savings could be used for debt reduction. This in itself is unlikely to have an effect on the stock.
