The initial bids for the picking of a contractor for the design, construction and putting into operation of units 1 and 2 of Bulgaria's second nuclear power plant Belene will take place on Wednesday.

The negotiations with the two companies will begin after an evaluation of the bids.

Two companies - a Czech and a Russian consortiums - successfully passed the first stage of the tender for the construction of the Belene nuclear power plant.

The two consortiums - one led by the Czech Skoda and another by Russia's Atomstroyexport - have met the demands of the first stage and were invited to join the second one.

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 formed a consortium with two banks and Atomexportstroy - with the French Framatome and German Siemens.
