The construction site of Visaginas Nuclear Power Plant (NPP) meets the highest nuclear safety standards, Lithuania's Prime Minister Andrius Kubilius said after visiting the geodetic wells at the construction site on Sunday.

"I was here a year ago and saw a clean green field and visions of Visaginas NPP, and now we saw the geologic tests carried out by Lithuanians and Americans that are in line with highest standards of international tests," the prime minister said in a telephone interview to BNS.

Lithuania plans to build a new nuclear power facility in Visaginas by 2020 to replace the Ignalina facility that saw its last operating reactor shut down in late 2009. The Visaginas project should be a joint venture with with Latvia, Estonia and Japan’s Hitachi. The government plans that the facility’s construction will be launched in 2014 and it could start generating electricity in 2020.
