VILNIUS - The field has been narrowed to two contenders, a french company and a korean company, of the bids to build Lithuania's new nuclear power plant.

The Lithuanian business daily Verslo Ziniosreported that the Electricite de France (EDF) and  Korea Electric Power Corp. are the two companies most likely to win the tender to construct the new power plant.

Lithuania is due to construct a new power plant to replace the one at Ignalina that was shut down at the start of this year over safety concerns.
