2. Lithuania's new nuclear build plans have sprung back into life with the announcement of two proposals from reactor vendors. The country has longstanding plans to replace the Ignalina power plant, which used two large Soviet-era reactors to power most of the Baltic States region.
The proposals were listed as coming from Westinghouse and Hitachi-GE, but no details were revealed by any of the participants.
The energy minister, Andrej Sekmokas, said the project is "at a very mature stage" and talks on the proposals would now start with the other Baltic States partners, Estonia, Latvia and Poland. A winning proposal should be selected in coming months said Sekmokas.
