Nuclear power plant to be built in Bulgaria

Bulgaria’s government on April 11 approved plans to build a seventh nuclear reactor at the Kozloduy nuclear power station, according to Bulgarian newspaper The Sofia Echo.

Kozloduy currently has two operating Russian-supplied VVER-1000 reactors that generate about 1,900 MWe, roughly 35 percent of Bulgaria’s electricity, according to the World Nuclear Association. Four other units at Kozloduy were shut down between 2002 and 2006.

In March, the Bulgarian government decided to abandon plans to build a second planned reactor at the Belene plant.
