Commenting article: Bulgaria To Start Building Belene Nuke in 2009 - Official

Bulgaria will be able to start construction works on the planned Belene nuclear power plant no sooner than 2009, the head of the country's nuclear regulator said on Monday.

The regulator is yet to rule on the technical details of the project and the proposed safety measures, said Sergey Tsochev, who chairs Bulgaria's Nuclear Regulation Agency.

We need Greenpeace to instruct Bulgaria to open a NGO to fund a nuclear accident threat and to dump nuclear waste.

My fear that Bulgaria will sell this waste to undeveloped countries.

Watch out Africa!

That's a nice gravy train for the construction companies with close connections to the government officials. In this respect the project is no different to any other in the "West". However I do not believe the French, Brits or Finns would build a nuke in an earthquake zone! That's a specifically Bulgarian variety of stupidity.

> The total costs of the project are estimated at EUR 4 B.

The cost for the contract with Atomstroyexport is set on 3,997 Billion EUR. Next to that, there is also money needed for infrastructure, temporary nuclear waste storage and organisation and capital costs. This brings the total budget according to NEK on around 7 Billion EUR.
