This year, Temelin employees and specialised teams are to take part in at least eight exercises, during which they will be training procedure in extraordinary situations and all possible risks.

The subject of the first exercise held this year was a fictive fire on a rail vehicle transporting a container with spent fuel to a storage facility, Svitak said referring to today´s exercise.

Last year it was for the first time in its existence that Temelin organised an exercise focusing on its protection against a terrorist attack.

For 2015, Temelin plans a large exercise in which teams from the regional integrated rescue system and the Czech Republic's emergency staff are to take part.

Temelin, with an output of 1,056 MWe in each of its two units, is the biggest source of electricity in the Czech Republic. Its output covers 20 percent of the domestic power consumption.

Last year, Temelin generated 15.065 billion kWh of electricity.
