Eesti Energia nuclear energy department Andres Tropp said in an interview to Eesti Päevaleht that Estonia's participation in Lithuanian nuclear power plant will become clear by Midsummer's in 2012.

Poland might return to the project and when Lithuania decides upon the final design of the nuclear power plant, Estonia can make its participation decision too, informs LETA.

Tropp said that two weeks ago, they met with Japanese reactor producer Hitachi. "The meeting concerned technical negotiations, we are far from final agreements," said Tropp.

Tropp said that some decisions will be made this half the year. "The location has been clear a long time, it is next to the old nuclear power plant," said Tropp, adding that the lot has received all the needed approvals.

"Today we are interested in what the most important parameters of the project could look like and it is not less important what the regulative environment in Lithuania will be since nuclear energy industry is a very much regulated sphere," said Tropp.
