The construction works on Bulgaria's second nuclear power plant in the town of Belene will be launched in 2005, and three years later the first 1000 MgW unit will be started, the local Yantra Dnes newspaper reported, citing engineer Vassil Bandov, deputy-chief of the plant.

The article also claims that by the end of April 2004 the report on the effects of the plant on the environment will be ready.

Earlier in January Atomic Energy of Canada, one of the foreign companies that eye the construction of the second nuclear power plant, recommended to the Bulgarian government to either back with arguments the project or decide on using alternative technologies which enjoy popularity in the European Union.

The President of the Canadian company also called on the government to weigh up the economic pros and cons and choose the appropriate technology.

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.
