Croatian government sources told Yle that the government has no information about Migrit Energy, the potential Croatian investor in the Finnish nuclear power station project.
However, the Zagreb-based firm wrote that its cooperation with the Croatian government was important, in a release published on Wednesday.
The Croatian government is reportedly currently investigating the relationship between Fennovoima and Migrit Energy.
Since the announcement on Tuesday that Migrit Energy became a last-minute investor in the nuclear project, some have suspected that the deal may have been orchestrated by Russian investors.
On Wednesday, Fennovoima CEO Toni Hemminki told Yle’s A-Studio that Migrit Energy is not a front company.
He also said that Russian contractor Rosatom did not assist Fennovoima in finding Migrit Energy.
Russia’s Rosatom is contracted to provide the reactor for the planned project, and also owns 35 percent of Fennovoima stock.
