Bulgaria's State Enterprise Radioactive Waste (SERAW) has awarded the Empresarios Agrupados / Nuvia Consortium a three-year contract extension to the Decommissioning-Repository Project Management Unit (D-R PMU) contract.

Since 2013, Nuvia has been supporting D-R PMU in managing the programme for the decommissioning of Kozloduy 1-4 and the construction of the National Disposal Facility in Bulgaria. The programme is funded by the Kozloduy International Decommissioning Support Fund (KIDSF) and administered by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD).

Nuvia said that recent achievements have included the commissioning of a Plasma Melting Facility, and a Size Reduction and Decontamination Facility at Kozloduy.

“This extension reflects well on the value that Nuvia and its partners bring to SERAW’s Kozloduy Decommissioning and National Disposal Facility programmes," said Andrew Graham International Business Manager at Nuvia. "It aligns with our strategic aims to develop long term relationships with our Clients.”
