EPH made the announcement today as also came a statement from PPF whose chief financial officer Katerina Jiraskova said, "Between us, we will be able to provide better financing for the acquisition, if we succeed in the process, and also for the future development of Vattenfall's existing assets in Germany."

Another Czech utility, CEZ, and Greenpeace who want to bid and permanently retire the coal-fired power plants, expressed an interest since Vattenfall opened bidding last month.
