Energy Minister Rumen Radev, who took part in a discussion of the draft resolutions on the construction of new capacities at the Kozloduy Nuclear Power Plant (NPP) site in Parliament on Friday, said that potential compliance with the green deal would definitely require new capacities to the power plant. The Minister stated that Bulgaria needs serious base capacities.

Radev noted that nuclear power is a low-emission technology.

The Minister said: "It is good that a clear understanding has emerged that in the long run we need to rely on additional nuclear capacity to provide baseload power." He said that one of the projects currently under discussion is the aggressive expansion of the transmission network within the country.

Radev praised the choice back in the past to use Westinghouse's AP1000 design to build the Kozloduy NPP. He described the technology as reliable, safe, good and added: "This solution is extremely adequate to the needs of our energy system including in terms of power, mode of operation, flexibility."
