Rosatom Wants to Help in the Belene NPP Project

The nuclear power company Rosatom has expressed readiness to get involved in the construction of the Belene NPP in Bulgaria.

The First Deputy Director General of Rosatom, Kirill Komarov, was interviewed by Bulgarian media outlets about potential involvement in Belene NPP. He congratulated Bulgaria for returning to the abandoned project and said the country’s PM Boyko Borisov propose the removal of the decision to stop the construction of Belene NPP.

Komarov said: “Most importantly, the Bulgarian government decided to return to the realization of the project Belene NPP. It appears to me this is the most important and most positive news.” He also said: “That’s why we are ready to take any role that the government sets as possible for us, as an EPC contractor, of delivering certain equipment, as technical consultants, whatever suits Bulgaria.”

The Bulgarian Minister of Energy, Temenuzhka Petkova, also underlined the importance of Rosatom, stating: “Without cooperation and without them there’s no way to go forward. Here I’d like to note that we have a wonderful cooperation with the colleagues from Rosatom.”

While the Belene Nuclear Power Plant Project was frozen indefinitely, it’s possible that it may be realized as a joint Balkan project. The Macedonian ambassador to Bulgaria claimed his country would invest in the power plant.
