Chiefs of four world-leading energy companies enquired about opportunities for the construction of Bulgarian second nuclear plant in Belene at a meeting with Prime Minister Simeon Saxe-Coburg.

Presidents and vice-presidents of Atomic Energy of Canada, Italian Ansaldo Nuclear and two Japanese energy companies, Hitachi Corp. and Itochu Corp., attended the meeting.

Canadian state company Atomic Energy of Canada (AECL) is one of the five companies, which confirmed their interest officially in the construction of the new Nuclear Power Plant Belene last year. Its principal bid includes the application of Canadian technology CANDU.

Along with Russian Atomstroyexport, American Westinghouse, French Framatom, Czech Skoda, the company submitted a principal bid for completing construction works on the Belene N-plant site.

On Dec 19, 2002 Bulgarian government lifted the ban on the completion of Bulgaria's second nuclear plant. The project for its construction was shelved in 1992 after pressure from environmentalists.
