Bulgaria's Supreme Administrative Court has dropped the claim by eco activists against the Belene plant, Bulgaria's to-be second nuclear power producer.

Greenpeace and local environmental organization Ecoglasnost say that Bulgarian authorities did not make a waste evaluation before okaying the decision about Belene.

This decision assigned concrete obligations to the Energy Minister and other organs, in relations to the completion of the project. The court's decision can be challenged by a private appeal before a five-member jury in seven days after it has been announced.

The Greenpeace move began the past summer, when the eco campaigners declared a crusade against Bulgarian energetics.

Greenpeace demanded for a halt on future investment in nuclear projects, as well as for writing off Belene.

Bulgaria should name the chief contractor by May 2006 to build the plant.
