The people living in the region of Paks were informed at the TEIT day held in the Paks Nuclear Power Plant about the results of the nuclear power plant and the Paks II. project, and the national practice of radioactive waste management.

In Germany deforestation and monument destruction is common in Germany, in order to mine the resources for coal power plants, renewables are subsidied yearly with twice the amount of the Paks II. project, yet the price of electricity is three times the Hungarian people pay. János Cziczer, operations director of Paks II. Nuclear Power Plant Ltd. started his lecture with this descriptive example on the TEIT Day, which was held on the Paks Nuclear Power Plant’s area, in the Maintenance Training Center and in the Atomic Energy Museum. Approximately 200 people of the thirteen settlements came for the program, organized jointly by the Social Control, Information and Municipal Development Association (TEIT) with MVM Paks Nuclear Power Plant Ltd.

The Operations Director of Paks II. Nuclear Power Plant Ltd. emphasized, Hungary chose another way: besides renewables, mainly solar energy, nuclear power is considered as an important pillar of our energy supply, as nuclear power plants produce electricity in a cheap, safe and climate-friendly way. He pointed out that at the moment there are 455 reactors operate worldwide, but 55 are under construction. Many Central European countries have a similar path as Hungary.

János Cziczer underlined: Paks II. project is a major investment of our country, accompanied by a serious regional development program. He talked about the main features of the units planned for Paks, the safety systems and the fact that the Russian partner will provide a turnkey power plant.

On the TEIT Day, the Communications Director of MVM Paks Nuclear Power Plant Ltd. informed the delegates of the settlements in the vicinity of the nuclear power plant. He explained that the technology used by Paks is a good construction, has been tested very well over the last decades and provides half of the national electricity production while not burdening the environment. The Managing Director of Public Limited Company for Radioactive Waste Management, which is responsible for this work, has been reporting on the management and placement of radioactive waste and spent fuel.

During the lectures at the Maintenance Training Center, the staff of the Atomic Energy Museum organized programs for the children of the thirteen settlements of TEIT.
