Baltic states squabble over joint nuclear project

Estonia is considering pulling out of the project and could build its own nuclear power plant instead, according to media reports

Estonia is considering pulling out of joint nuclear plant project proposed by Lithuania to its Baltic neighbours and Poland, according to media reports.  Prime minister Andrus Ansip is said to be frustrated by the lack of progress made so far in moving the project forward.  Eesti Energia could build its nuclear power plant despite the huge costs involved, reports Baltic Business News.  Lithuania is under pressure from the EU to close its Ignalina plant (EED 18/09/08).  The plant supplies power to Estonia and Latvia.  See CEE Bankwatch press release
