Bulgaria to build two more power units at Maritsa East

Bulgaria will build two more power units at its largest energy complex Maritsa East, which will have a capacity of 230 MW to 240 MW each, Economy Minister Traicho Traikov said in an interview with Bulgarian mass-circulation daily 24 Chassa.Currently, the ministry is reviewing two options for funding the project - through a public-private partnership or through placing for sale a minority stake in the plant, he said.In late May, the ministry said it was in talks with potential investors for adding new capacity to the plant.The new units could be separated into a new company, Maritsa East 4, or become part of the existing state-owned plant Maritsa East 2.On a separate note, Traikov said the ministry could decide to replace the generators of the fifth and sixth power units at the Kozloduy nuclear power plant, a move that would cost 20 million euro. The proposed rehabilitation would ensure an additional 60 MW of power. (Source: The Sofia Echo)
