Bulgaria Eyes Talks with GE to Add Two Units to Coal-fired Power Plant

Bulgaria is starting talks with General Electric on the construction of two new units at the Maritsa Iztok 2 coal-fired thermal power plant, Bulgarian economy minister Dragomir Stoynev said on Sunday.
Due to the upcoming decommissioning of some thermal power capacity, it is important that Bulgaria continue to generate electricity using coal, Stoynev told the Bulgarian National Radio following his return a day earlier from a visit to the U.S.
The official added General Electric is also interested in providing compressor technology for the construction of the South Stream gas pipeline project and that similar interest was indicated to him by Rolls-Royce during a recent visit to London.
Maritsa Iztok 2, owned by the state-run Bulgarian Energy Holding, has eight units with a combined capacity of 1,600 megawatts.
