The life of unit 5 of Bulgaria’s Kozloduy nuclear power plant may be extended by up to 60 years, according to a media statement of the N-plant.

Bulgaria’s Kozloduy NPP announced Thursday that it had signed a contract on the extension of the life of unit 5 with a French-Russian consortium consisting of Russian companies Rosenergoatom and Rosatom Service and France’s Electricite de France (EDF).

According to a media statement published on the website of Rosenergoatom, the project is to be implemented as soon as possible.

The program for the extension of the life of unit 5 of the Kozloduy NPP has been approved by Bulgaria’s Nuclear Regulatory Agency.

Rosenergoatom and EDF are already taking part in the preparations for the extension of the life of units 5 and 6 of the Kozloduy NPP as their licenses expire in 2017 and 2019, respectively.

According to the media statement, similar steps are to be undertaken for the extension of the life of unit 6 of the Kozloduy NPP.
