The TVEL Fuel Company, a subsidiary of ROSATOM, is to supply and load modernized fuel into one of the reactors of Bulgaria’s Kozloduy nuclear power plant in 2016, according to a senior official of the company.

“As regards supplies of modernized fuel for the Kozloduy NPP, a contract signed in 2014 is currently in force. In accordance with the contract, we have now reached the final stage of the preparation of the necessary documents for the issuance of a license by the Bulgarian Nuclear Regulatory Agency and the permit for the use of the modernized type of fuel,” Lavernuk said.

He expressed his hope that, following the existing schedule, Bulgaria’s nuclear watchdog would issue the permit to TVEL by end-2015, adding that it was possible for the procedure to drag on into 2016.

Lavrenuk made clear that TVEL’s plans envisaged the first delivery and charging of one of the reactors of the Kozloduy NPP with modernized fuel to take place in 2016.

He informed that everything was on schedule so far.
