Upper Austria's Commissioner for Foreign Nuclear Facilities, Radko Pavlovec, has said Tuesday's lawsuit against the Czech Republic's state-owned power utility CEZ is designed to force the company to removing technical shortcomings at the country's Temelin nuclear power plant. Mr Pavlovec said he expected the court case to take several years. Austria, and especially the province of Upper Austria, is fiercely anti-nuclear, and says the neighbouring Temelin plant poses a risk to safety. The Czech Republic says the plant, which is currently closed for repairs to a turbine, is safe.
