Bulgaria Energy Minister Denies Asking Russia for Belene NPP Loan
Bulgaria's Economy and Energy and Tourism Minister, Traicho Traikov, has contradicted Russian claims that Bulgaria has asked for a EUR 3,8 B loan for the construction of Belene NPP.
Traikov was replying to Russian Finance Minister, Alexei Kudrin, who stated earlier that the Russian government was currently considering the loan request. He was speaking after a debate on the Bulgarian energy sector in the Bulgarian parliament.
Traikov also added that there may be more than two two foreign investors interested in submitting bids for acquiring part of Bulgaria’s planned nuclear plant in Belene. He however refused to give further details.
Bulgaria’s Finance Minister, Simeon Djankov, earlier announced that two foreign investors are “very interested” in submitting bids for acquiring 30% of Belene NPP before the November deadline.
