The Kozloduy nuclear power station located near Vratsa is the only nuclear power plant operating in Bulgaria. Owned and operated by Kozloduy NPP, a subsidiary of state-owned Bulgarian Energy Holding (BEH), the country’s sole nuclear power facility has been producing electricity since 1974. Four 440MW units of the total six Soviet-made reactor units at the site have been permanently shut down, while units five and six with a total installed capacity of 2GW are currently operational and supplying approximately one-third of the country’s electricity. The two latest units at the site are being upgraded and modernised to extend their operational lives by 30 years each.
