Bulgaria will start to build its second nuclear power plant this year. The move was announced by the chairman of the parliamentary committee on energetics, Vesselin Blisnakov.

According to him, Bulgaria will begin to gather information about companies that show interest in the construction and the exploitation of the Belene plant to be erected in Northern Bulgaria near the first N-plant Kozloduy on the Danube River. The value of the project is also to be estimated. Bliznakov said it wouldn't absorb less than USD 1.2 B. The information should be available mid-2002. This stage is to be followed by a broad discussion involving Bulgarian and foreign experts about the type of the reactors to be used in Belene.

The project will be unfrozen after it was suspended in 1990 under pressure from environmentalists.
