A Czech and a Russian consortium saw Monday the public opening of their bids for a contract with Bulgaria's government to build a EUR 2 B nuclear plant.

The two consortiums - one led by the Czech Skoda and another by Russia's Atomstroyexport - have met the June 17 deadline for acquiring tender papers.

The applicants must submit their detailed offers of technical specifications and financial blueprints by July 17.

The bidding prerequisites for the construction of Bulgaria's second nuclear plant include an annual turnover of at least USD 5 B and previous experience in the construction and commissioning of water-pressurized nuclear units.

Skoda is expected to have formed a consortium with two banks and Atomexportstroy - with the French Framatome and German Siemens.

The chief contractor for the construction of Bulgaria's second nuclear power plant should be selected by January 2006.
