Areva and the Bulgarian Energy Holding Company have signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to develop clean energy projects in Bulgaria. Areva says that it intends to extend its contribution to Bulgaria’s civil nuclear programme and assist in developing local renewable energy sources such as biomass and wind.

The MOU provides for potential cooperation in new nuclear projects on the Kozloduy and Belene sites. It also covers the elaboration of fuel management policies and solutions including spent fuel recycling as well as cooperation in the field of nuclear safety and related standards. The parties intend to study cooperation in the development of scientific and technical potential regarding civil nuclear safety, including educational and training activities for improving the qualification of nuclear experts and exchange of experience.

Areva has been working in Bulgaria for over a decade where it participated in the major modernization project for the Kozloduy 5 and 6 nuclear units and also more recently in preliminary contracts for the Belene nuclear site completion.
