Bulgarian Energy Holding Seeks Adviser for Construction of NPP Unit

The Bulgarian Energy Holding (BEH) has opened a procedure to select through directs talks a consultant on the construction of a new unit of Bulgaria's sole nuclear power plant Kozloduy, a notice filed by the company showed.
The scope of works was defined as "drawing up a roadmap for the construction of a new unit of nuclear power plant Kozloduy" as an investment project with international participation, the company said without revealing further details.
The Bulgarian government decided in March 2012 to add a 1,000 megawatt (MW) unit to the Kozloduy plant, on the Danube, instead of building a 2,000 MW NPP from scratch in another Danubian town, Belene.
The project received at the beginning of October a positive environmental impact assessment by the country’s environment ministry.
The Kozloduy plant is operating two 1,000 MW units after the government closed down four older units of 440 MW each to address nuclear safety concerns of the European Union prior to the country's accession to the bloc. Bulgaria joined the EU in 2007.
