“There is a real hazard of an earthquake at Paks” – Austrian geologist warns Hungary

The site of the Paks NPP and the planned Paks II NPP are not suitable for the construction of a nuclear power plant according to Hungarian legislation and international recommendations. This is the conclusion reached by experts commissioned by the Austrian Environmental Protection Agency after analysing data from a geological research comissioned by MVM Paks II Zrt. in preparation for the expansion of the Paks NPP. Dr. Kurt Decker, a geologist at the University of Vienna, told Átlátszó that they found significant differences between the geological site report and the resulting site safety report, that the tectonic fault line running under the site should be considered active and capable, and that there is a realistic chance of a devastating earthquake at Paks.

According to the Ministry of Defence, last year they had already talked to the local residents about the plans for the investment, but the presentation made for the 24 February event, mentioned by the MoD, does not say a word about the base.
