Bulgaria To Open New Nuclear Waste Depot in 2015

Bulgaria will open a depot for nuclear waste with low to medium level of radioactivity in 2015, the state-run company in charge of radioactive waste management said on Thursday.

The construction of the depot in northern Bulgaria with a planned capacity of 138,200 cubic metres will be financed through The Kozloduy International Decommissioning Support Fund (KIDS), Radioactive Waste company said in a statement.

The fund was established in 2001 to support projects for restructuring and upgrades in Bulgaria's energy sector, thus compensating the country for the decommissioning of four reactors of 440 megawatts (MW) each at its sole nuclear power plant Kozloduy.
