Non-Russian Foreign Investor Thought to Be Interested in Belene Nuclear Plant Project

A non-Russian foreign investor is interested in buying the project for a second Bulgarian nuclear power plant at Belene, ABV party Deputy Chairman Roumen Petkov told a news conference in Pleven on Wednesday. Petkov said that, using personal channels, he has verified that a letter from the potential investor has reached Bulgaria's Council of Ministers.
The intended investor has asked to meet with the Bulgarian government, stating that he does not expect any financial guarantees from the government about the investment in the Belene project, Petkov said. Nor does he want any agreement requiring the government to buy the electricity which will be generated by the future nuclear power plant. The investor is ready to use the project design already approved, Petkov said.
"The investor knows that the environmental impact assessment licence has expired. I think that the Bulgarian government should invite him as soon as possible and should examine the condition of his entire business and the capital origin guarantees," Petkov said.
