The tender for selecting an engineering consultant for Bulgaria's second nuclear power plant construction project saw a cancellation, after only two candidates filed bids by the deadline.

By law, at least three candidates must supply their bids to proceed with public tenders.

London-based Parsons and Spain's Impresarios Agrupados were the only companies to have shown interest in the Bulgarian nuclear plant project, but their bidding offers were not opened as the procedure was scrapped.

The Board of Directors of the National Electricity Transmission Company is expected to decide which legal option to prefer further on. The law envisages that the procedure is either ended, or the deadline for submitting bids is prolonged within 30 days.

The Parsons consultants are currently engaged in the modernization works at 5th and 6th units of Kozloduy power plant and serves as consultant on the preparation of the draft report on the ecological impact of the Belene construction project and its technical and economical analysis.

Spain's Impresarios Agrupados have had experience with bidding for Romania's Tcehrna Voda power plant consultancy project, as well as in the pre-drafted construction research of Turkey's first nuclear power plant.

The construction of the second Bulgarian nuclear plant was unfrozen end of last year after being shelved in since 1992 due to environmentalists' pressure.
