The companies will collaborate in diversifying the country’s fuel deliveries, under the co-operation agreement.

They will also discuss the potential extension of the life of the fifth and sixth reactor units at Bulgaria’s Kozloduy nuclear power plant and in building a new nuclear unit at the facility.

The Bulgarian economy minister Traicho Traikov earlier said that Westinghouse has showed interest in construction of the seventh nuclear unit at Kozloduy.

The company also wanted to participate in decommissioning the first four reactors at the plant and in extending the lifespan of its fifth and sixth reactors, reports The Sofia Echo.
