China's CNNC Confirms Investment Interest in Bulgarian NPP Project

China National Nuclear Corporation (CNNC) has confirmed its interest in investing in the construction of a nuclear power plant (NPP) in Bulgaria, the Southeast European country's energy ministry said on Thursday. Meeting with representatives of the Chinese company, Bulgarian government officials noted that a possible implementation of the Belene NPP project would involve a competition procedure for a strategic investor, the energy ministry said in a statement."The government will provide no guaranties for the project, nor sign long-term power purchase agreements," deputy prime minister Tomislav Donchev was quoted as saying at the meeting. Following a decision of the country's Parliament in March, a working group with the energy ministry is exploring the options for the use of the available equipment for the Belene project. In 2008, Bulgaria hired Atomstroyexport to build a nuclear plant in Belene, reviving a project that had been mothballed for nearly two decades.
