Bulgaria Calls for More Closed Nuclear Plant Compensation

Date: 28.05.2009

The European Union should pay further compensation to Bulgaria for the two closed reactors at the country's Kozloduy nuclear power plant, according to the country's European Commissioner.

Commissioner Meglena Kuneva, who leads the ballot for the European elections of the central party National Movement for Stability and Prosperity, said that the negotiated compensations run out at the end of the year and Brussels should allot more money.

Speaking at a meeting with voters in the town of Dobrich Bilyana Raeva, MEP from the central party, said that Bulgaria should set as its top priority the development of modern nuclear energy and not just strive to recover "dead bodies" from the past.

Brussels has paid all EUR 550 M of compensations that it had promised for the decommissioning of the two units in 2006.

Bulgaria's Socialist-led government has recently called on Brussels to compensate the country for the double blow of the gas crisis and the global economic slowdown by allowing a restart of the units.

The European Commission however has been adamant that a relaunch of the two Soviet-era reactors at Bulgaria's sole nuclear power plant is out of the question.
