Bulgaria to construct radioactive waste depot

The Energy Ministry of Bulgaria announced on Thursday that the government had signed an agreement with German Nukem Technologies to construct a radioactive waste depot for the country's Kozloduy nuclear plant, Reuters report.


The facility will be put into operation in 2021. The project is estimated at  72 m euro.

German Nukem Technologies is controlled by Russia's state nuclear company Atomstroyexport, as well as four Bulgaria's companies.

The project is funded by the Kozloduy International Decommissioning Support Fund, administered by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development. In order to comply with the European regulations, Bulgaria closed four 440 MW Soviet-era reactors at Kozloduy.

At present, two 1,000 MW reactors operate in the city.
