Varna thermal power plant has connected to the national power grid three additional 210-megawatt units following a recent emergency shutdown at the country's sole nuclear power station.

Kozloduy nuclear power station underwent automated safety system shutdown of its 1000-megawatt VVER type unit five on September 1.

Varna units will make up for the losses incurred by the shutdown to generate the electricity needed for the Bulgarian market and keep the energy balance.

The plant has six units generating up to 1.26MW. Three of the units are put online only at the request of the state-owned power grid operator NEK in case of electricity shortage.

CEZ, the largest Czech power distributor, acquired the 1,260-megawatt coal-fired Varna plant in May last year, increasing the group production capacity by 10%.
