On of the latest WikiLeaks publications sheds light on the reasons for the delay in the project to build a second Nuclear Power Plant in the Danube town of Belene in Bulgaria, the Russian daily Komersant writes.
The cable in question, dated September 2009, was sent from the American Embassy in Sofia. It was released by WikiLeaks and provided to the Bulgarian project for investigative journalism www.bivol.bg, bringing out new details about Bulgaria's energy sector and its dependence on Russia. The text has also been published at the Balkanleaks site, an analogue of the notorious whistle-blowing WikiLeaks.
According to the cable, in 2009, after the new Bulgarian government of the Citizens for European Development of Bulgaria, GERB, party took office, the American company Westinghouse, with the active support of the US Embassy in Sofia, had worked to push Bulgaria to cancel Russian participation in the NPP project by showing technical inferiorities in the Russian-made reactors, and proposing to Bulgaria to get away from the deal of sending spent nuclear fuel back to Russia....
IMHO, Westinghouse has an outstanding product and an avant guard technology:
