Bulgaria may leverage US technology for the development of a new nuclear reactor it is planning to build at the country’s 2,000 megawatt Kozloduy nuclear power plant. This was announced by Prime Minister Boyko Borissov on Tuesday, according to a report by the Reuters. A final decision on the matter will be taken after considering a study which will analyse the options for building new nuclear plants at the Kozloduy site. The government is expected to grant permission to the study this week. The new move is said to be part of Bulgerian government’s effort to diversify its nuclear energy assets. Additionally, the country is looking to minimise its greenhouse emissions with a new reactor that will run on US nuclear energy fuel.
