Bulgaria's only nuclear power plant has asked for a change in the licenses of the plant's Units 1 and 2 that were shut off in the beginning of 2003.

The head of the Nuclear Regulatory Agency Sergey Tsochev announced Wednesday that Kozloduy NPP have requested their work on dismantling the equipment to be included in the licence.

This had nothing to do with the safe storage of waste fuel, Tsochev pointed out.

The Agency has six months to decide on the plant's request.

Bulgaria had to decommission the first two units of its nuclear power plant as agreed with the EU. Units 3 and 4 will also be closed in the end of 2006, leaving the plant with just two operational units.
