Environmental Study on N-plant Units Decommissioning Gets OK
Thursday, 01 January 1970
The environment ministry approved an environmental impact assessment report on the planned decommissioning of four units of the country's sole nuclear power plant Kozloduy, the State Enterprise Radioactive Waste (SERAW) said.
The company will hold a public discussion on the report in the municipalities of Kozloduy and Miziya, SERAW said in a press release. The discussions will be open to Romanian citizens.
The nuclear plant is located on the Danube, Bulgaria's river border with Romania.
The Kozloduy plant remained with just two operational reactors of 1,000 megawatts (MW) each after the government closed down four 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.
