Bulgaria reconnects nuclear reactor after repairs
October 28, 2015 (Source: Reuters) — Bulgaria’s nuclear power plant Kozloduy reconnected one of its two 1,000 megawatt reactors to the national power grid late on Tuesday, after carrying out planned annual maintenance and refuelling, the plant said.
The Balkan country’s sole nuclear plant said it has carried out a number of modernisations at the Soviet-made reactor, aimed at lengthening its lifespan and boost its heating capacity to 104 percent.
The other unit was working at full capacity.
Sofia has stepped up work to extend the lifespan of the reactors by 30 years as it struggles to keep a lid on politically sensitive electricity costs.
