On June 4-5, field meeting of the European Union energy and nuclear energy attaché is being held in Lithuania.

On June 4, representatives of the Member States involved in operation of the Energy and Nuclear Issues working groups visited Ignalina Nuclear Power Plant. During the visit they heard the presentation on Ignalina NPP decommissioning projects and funding of the process during the next EU financial perspective 2014-2020. Also, they had the chance to enter the NPP and to become familiar with the ongoing projects and dismantling works in practice. According to the members of the delegations, before the visit they could not possibly imagine how vast this Project is and how large is the scope of ongoing works.
