Reactor at existing site could be completed within 10 years The existing Kozloduy nuclear station in Bulgaria. Courtesy Kozloduy NPP. The Bulgarian cabinet has approved a report on the possibility of building a new nuclear power unit at the existing Kozloduy nuclear power station in the northwest of the country, with completion possible within 10 years, the government’s press service said.

According to the report, prepared by the Bulgarian ministry of energy, a second site at Kozloduy has already received a positive environmental impact assessment from the regulator. The EIA included Russian VVER and US AP-1000 pressurised water reactor technology.

The report noted that construction of a seventh unit at Kozloduy, which has four shut-down units and two in operation, could use equipment from the Belene nuclear project.

In October 2020, the government gave permission to state-owned Bulgarian Energy Holding (BEH), which owns Kozloduy, to negotiate with US nuclear companies about deploying a new reactor at Kozloduy.
