Bulgaria rejects Atomstroyexport's proposed road map for Belene nuke project

Bulgaria's National Electricity Company (NEK) considers that the road map proposed by Atomstroyexport for the Belene nuclear plant cannot be accepted as a legally binding document, the country's state-run power company said on August 17.The statement comes as a response to the Russian company, hired to build the nuke plant, which presented last week projects for a new road map and a new annex to the main contract for the power station that would extend the agreement for the plant's construction until December.The Russian company said at the time, in a statement to Bulgarian media, that it would expect Sofia to decide on the proposed amendments by August 15.On August 17, two days later, NEK did not comment on the proposed extension. The deadline of the current additional agreement expires in September.NEK also reiterated its position that reaching a final agreement with Atomstroyexport would depend on the results of market research, risk assessment and the cost of the project.The company also hopes that negotiations between the parties would be resumed, the statement said./Source: The Sofia Echo/
