Bulgaria Dismisses Head of Energy Holding Co

Bulgaria's energy and economy minister has dismissed the executive director of the state-owned Bulgarian Energy Holding (BEH) Yordan Georgiev, the ministry said on Sunday.

The vacated position will be filled by Mihail Andonov, transferring from his current job as manager of power grid operator NEK, the ministry said in a statement.

Georgiev is let go in view of the need to have in this position a manager who knows Bulgaria's energy sector inside and out, the statement said.

Andonov has been working in the energy sector for 17 years and has comprehensive knowledge of the problems there that need to be resolved promptly, the ministry said.

BEH (www.bgenh.bg) incorporates assets of Bulgaria's sole nuclear power plant Kozloduy, gas monopoly Bulgargaz, gas transmission system operator Bulgartransgaz, telecommunications operator Bulgartel, NEK and its wholly-owned system operator Electricity System Operator, coal-fired power plant Maritsa East 2 and the Maritsa East coal mines.
