Paks II. on new social media

4/22/21 6:36 AM
The company, which coordinates the implementation of the two new Paks NPP units, launched an Instagram and Twitter account on 22 April, the Earth Day.

The project company coordinating the implementation of the new Paks NPP units has been present on the Internet since its formation: in addition to the company website, it also operates a Facebook and Linkedin page. The progress of the largest domestic investment of the century justifies us appearing on newer surfaces, Instagram and Twitter - said István Mittler, communications director of Paks II. Ltd.

With the official Instagram account just launched, the company is once again opening up to young people. The average age of the people working at Paks II. is 40 years, the proportion of young professionals in the project is about 40%. These numbers also show that the team is young, experts with decades of experience and talented young professionals working together on the investment. We consider it important that the company also speaks in their language on social media.

The communications director also mentioned that the company's Twitter channel, launched in English, will primarily inform international players in the nuclear industry and news agencies about the progress of the project. The Paks project is being monitored not only in Hungary, but all over the world. That’s why we run an English language website and that’s why we’re now appearing in English on Twitter - he said. István Mittler emphasized that there’s reason for the start on 22 April, which is Earth Day.

We also emphasize that nuclear energy is one of the cleanest, most sustainable ways of electricity generation. Nuclear-based energy production is an important tool in the fight against climate change. This is not only stated by the nuclear profession, but also by the European Commission's independent scientific service, the Joint Research Center (JRC), which recently concluded that the wind, hydropower and nuclear sectors have the lowest greenhouse gas emissions.

The communications director added that the results of the JRC's science based analyzes show that nuclear power generation does not pose a significant human and environmental risk than other renewable and non-renewable electricity generation technologies in the report.
