Bulgaria: Bulgaria's N-Plant Overshoots 2007 Target by 6.3% Units 5 and 6 are the last still operating at Kozloduy. Bulgaria shut down the other four units under pressure from the EU, which feels the old Soviet-made reactors were unsafe. File photo by Nadya Kotseva (Sofia Photo Agency)

Bulgaria's sole nuclear power plant at Kozloduy on the Danube said on Wednesday it overshot the projected electricity output target for 2007 by 6,31%.

Two weeks before the end of the year, the nuclear power plant had said it has already produced 13,78 million MWh of electricity, meeting the target set in its annual plan.

Kozloduy's final power output was 14,64 million MWh, with the two reactors working at 83,6% of their capacity throughout the year.

At the end of 2005, hours before joining the European Union, the country shut down reactors number 3 and 4 at Kozloduy to meet the safety requirements of the European Union prior to joining the bloc.

Units 5&6 remain online and working, while units 1&2, the oldest pair, were shut down in 2003.
