Calls for Kozloduy closure cash

Friday, June 6, 2008

The Bulgarian government is pushing the European Commission for at least another €550 million to compensate it for the forced closure of its Kozloduy nuclear power complex.

The country’s economy and energy minister Petar Dimitrov told an intelligent energy national information day ceremony the €550 million already pledged to the Kozloduy International Fund (of which €300 million has been used) was not nearly enough. Dimitrov said Bulgaria would apply for more European Union financing to “double at least” the fund’s budgets.
