In 1981, the electric utility associations of Croatia and Slovenia, Zajednica Elektro-Privrednih Organizacija Hrvatske-Zeoh and Elektrogospodarstvo Slovenije-Egs, respectively, began to consider construction of a not-less-than-1,000MW nuclear power plant at Prevlaka, Croatia. The Prevlaka plant was part of a larger plan by Yugoslavia to construct a series of five plants of approximately 1,000MW each. The schedule for the Prevlaka plant called for the beginning of construction in 1985 and completion of construction in 1992. The two electric utility associations issued a bidding call on 22 June 1984 for architect-engineering consultants for the planned Prevlaka plant. The plans for the Prevlaka plant was stymied largely due to the Chernobyl accident in April 1986. As a direct result of the accident. the Croatian Parliament removed reference to the Prevlaka nuclear plant from the 1986-1990 provincial plan.
