Construction of Bulgaria's Second Nuclear Power Plant to Begin Late 2009

The construction of Bulgaria's second nuclear power plant, AEC-Belene, may begin in the second half of 2009, nuclear regulator chairman Sergei Cochev said Saturday.

Prime Minister had made the first dig at the site this summer, but work can not begin without the regulator’s approval. All the documentation by Russian company Atomstroy Export, which is building the plant, is expected to arrive within days, said Cochev.

The regulator then has nine months to come up with a statement on the project. Expertise is to be done by 3 companies - a French one, a German one, and Bulgaria's N Pro Consult.
