15 firms interested in helping to extend Kozloduy nuke reactors' lifespan

As many as 15 firms have purchased tender documents for becoming consultants on the procedure intended to extend the lifespan of the fifth and sixth reactor units at Bulgaria's Kozloduy nuclear power plant (NPP), the company said on Monday.

Seven of the companies eager to take part in the project are foreign (western European, Russian and American), while the other firms are Bulgarian, but the nuke plant is not allowed to reveal the candidates' names as stipulated in the Public Procurement Act.

The winner will receive a minimum BGN 2.3 million for carrying out the procedure, given the tender participation fee of BGN 70,000, which accounts for up to three per cent of the contract value.

Offers may be submitted by May 19,2011.

Candidates must have an ISO 9001 certificate and previous experience in carrying out such contracts in the European Union.

The operating permits of the two operating 1,000-MW reactors, which were launched in 1988 and 1993, expire in 2017 and 2019, respectively. /Source: Dnevnik/
