A European Parliament (EP) delegation will pay a visit the Bulgaria's only nuclear power plant Kozloduy on March 22.

The 23 MEPs will come to Bulgaria on the invitation of Kozloduy's nuke Executive Director Yordan Kostadinov. He extended the invitation during a European Energy Forum (EEF) meeting in Strasbourg in November 2004.

The delegation, which includes representatives of UK, Germany, Greece, Spain and Hungary, will be headed by Socialist Group member Terence Wynn.

Just a day earlier Nuclear Engineering Magazine cited Geoffrey Van Orden, the European Parliament's Rapporteur for Bulgaria as saying that Bulgaria would be given approval to develop a new nuclear reactor.

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, which is to close down two more nuclear units in 2006.
