Bulgaria: towards extension of Kozloduy unit 6 license

Two reactors still operative at the nuclear power plant

(ANSA) - BELGRADE, SEPTEMBER 18 - The Bulgarian national nuclear regulator is expected to issue an extension of the operational license of the unit 6 of the nuclear power plant of Kozloduy in the next weeks, the specialised portal SeeNews reported, quoting the Bulgarian Energy ministry. "This will guarantee the effective work of both units of Bulgaria's sole nuclear power plant during the period of the license extension," SeeNews added, recalling that Bulgaria granted a license extension of ten years to unit 5 back in 2017.

Kozloduy has currently two units of 1,000 MW each. Bulgaria closed down four older units to address nuclear safety concerns prior to the country's accession to the European Union, in 2007, the portal said. (ANSA).
