Bulgaria Sees New 1,000 MW NPP Unit Cost at 5.0 Bln Dollars

Preliminary estimates put the cost for the construction of a new 1,000-megawatt (MW) unit at Bulgaria’s sole nuclear power plant (NPP) Kozloduy at 5.0 billion dollars (3.7 billion euro), the country’s deputy prime minister said.
All figures are provisional, as the project's financial framework and financial model are still being specified, the government press office quoted Daniela Bobeva as saying on Wednesday.
The Kozloduy NPP remained with two operational reactors of 1,000 MW each after the country closed down four units of 440 MW each to address nuclear safety concerns of the European Union prior to its accession to the bloc in 2007.
In April 2012, the government in Sofia decided to add a new unit to the plant.
