German utilities giant RWE is selling the Czech asset to cut debts under pressure from ratings agencies according to Reuters, which picked up the story from Belgian newspaper De Tijd.
It said other likely bidders included a joint offer from EPH and Macquarie and separate bids from Czech finance group KKCG and German insurer Allianz.
They could value the business at between €1.5bn and €2bn.
