Bulgaria's State Enterprise Radioactive Waste (SE-RAW) has approved the launch of a liquid radioactive waste processing system called "Dunav."

Georgi Gyoshev from SE RAW, as cited in a media statement of the state-owned company, informs that the installation was built in line with all construction norms and nuclear safety standards.

The equipment and the systems were mounted after a series of tests carried out in line with the requirements of the contracting authority.

The installation was mounted by Bulgarian specialists under the supervision of Russian Atomstroyexport.

The Russian partners from the Nizhny Novgorod Engineering Company Atomenergoproekt and Atomstroyexport will keep lending assistance with the servicing of the equipment during the 36-month warranty period.

"The construction was carried out within the frame of an international program for the decommissioning of the four units of Kozloduy NPP and was financed by the European Commission. The investor in the project was the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD)," the statement of SE-RAW informs.

The "Dunav" system was created to solve problems with the processing of liquid radioactive waste generated during the decommissioning of the four VVER 440-230 units of Kozloduy NPP and to reduce radiation risks in the storage of this type of waste.
