10 August 2018

On July 25, 2018, in Sofia, Bulgaria, a solemn ceremony of signing the final acts on the executed works as per the contract between Kozloduy NPP and Consortium Rusatom Service - Risk Engineering was held. The contract aimed at feasibility study execution for possible life extension of the power unit No. 6 to 60 years.

The results of the work carried out within the framework of the project showed that the equipment, construction structures and systems examined are in good working order. Also, considering the existing maintenance and repair system, can be safely operated until 2051, subject to work on managing the resource characteristics and implementing recommendations specified in the conclusions.

The main priority for the Bulgarian Government is to develop nuclear energy in accordance with international standards of environmental protection and human health. Last year the power unit No. 5 at the Kozloduy NPP received a new ten-year license, and the current project extension will help improve the operating life of the 6th power unit.
