The deadline for submitting the bids has been set for 2 July 2012. The winning bidder is expected to be announced in late 2013, according to CEZ. The evaluation criteria will be 50 percent based on technical project specification including safety and licence criteria, with the other 50 percent based on financial aspects of the bid such as price and commercial terms and conditions.

The Tender Documentation, which was handed over to the three candidates on 31 October, calls for the supply of two complete nuclear power plant blocks on a full turn-key basis, including nuclear fuel sets for nine years of operation. Among other things, the documentation defines commercial and technical requirements that are to be fulfilled in the course of the public contract implementation, as well as the evaluation criteria.

CEZ says that it has taken 3 years and 2 months to prepare the entire Tender Documentation. It was prepared by over 400 specialists in virtually all existing fields of engineering and natural science and also by specialists in safety, purchasing, finance, sales, planning and law.
