Russian-made A92 nuclear reactors, which Bulgaria picked for its second nuclear power plant at Belene on the Danube, are set to receive a European Utility Requirements (EUR) certificate.

The certificate stipulates the minimum requirements that have to be met by nuclear reactors used in the European Union, which Bulgaria joined in January.

The ceremony in Moscow will be attended by the three companies that developed the A92 reactor, members of the EUR organisation, as well as Yordan Georgiev, chief executive of the company that will build the Belene power plant.

Other members of the EUR club include British Energy, EDF, Fortum, Iberdrola, Nuclear Research & Consultancy Group (NRG), Rosenergoatom, Swiss Nuclear, Tractebel, Teollisuuden Voima Oy (TVO), Vattenfall and VGB PowerTech.
