Bulgaria would be given approval to develop a new nuclear reactor, according to a draft report compiled by Geoffrey Van Orden, the European Parliament's Rapporteur for Bulgaria, as quoted by Nuclear Engineering Magazine.

The report, which will require approval from the European Parliament's Foreign Affairs Committee, will eventually form the basis of the country's European Union accession.

The document includes specific references to Kozloduy, Bulgaria's only operating nuclear power plant, that is to close down two more nuclear units in 2006.

In the course of its accession talks, Bulgaria has made the commitment to decommission Kozloduy units three and four as part of its EU accession talks.

The report now acknowledges that Bulgaria made compromises, which considerably influence the future energy situation on a national and regional level, and underlines the importance of developing a new nuclear plant.
