Bulgaria to build new generating unit at Kozloduy nuclear power plant.

By bne IntelliNews April 12, 2012
The government made a decision to build a new generating unit at Kozloduy nuclear power plant, finance minister Simeon Dyankov said, as quoted by BTA. The new facility will be designed and built without any government guarantees or taxpayers' money, Djankov said. The government will install the 1,000 MW nuclear reactor, already produced by Russia's Rosatom, for the Belene project at the site of the operating nuclear plant in Kozloduy. At end-March, the parliament approved the decision of the government to scrap the project for construction of a 2,000 MW nuclear power plant in the Danube town of Belene, due to the high price and the lack of European strategic investor.
