Five Companies Shortlisted for Negotations on Belene N-Plant Project

Five Companies Shortlisted for Negotations on Belene N-Plant Project

19.12.2019
December 19 (BTA) - Russia's Rosatom, Korea Hydro & Nuclear Power Co. Ltd. (KHNP), the China National Nuclear Corporation (CNNC), France's Framatome and General Electric of the US have been shortlisted for negotiations on the Belene N-Plant project, Bulgarian Energy Minister Temenouzhka Petkova told the National Assembly Energy Committee on Thursday. Petkova explained that the five companies will be invited to submit binding bids. She specified that the Russian, South Korean and Chinese companies are bidding for strategic investors in the project, Framatome wishes to supply the safety systems and finance this share of its participation, and General Electric wishes to manufacture turbines and other equipment and will also self-finance this part of the project. The Energy Minister said that the five were selected on the basis of their experience in building nuclear power plants, their financial stability and high credit rating. "Undoubtedly, these are companies which are among the world leaders in the nuclear power industry," Petkova said. Before the end of January 2020, each of these companies will be asked to sign a confidentiality agreement, and after such an agreement is signed, they will receive the information memorandum on the project. The first binding bids will be ready in early May. Petkova said that out of a total of 13 applications submitted, four are for acquisition of a minority stake in the future project company. Minority stakes will be provided to potential strategic investors so that they would be able to enter into negotiations. The Energy Minister said that the State will have a blocking minority in the project and will contribute non-cash assets: site, equipment and licences. In her words, Bulgaria will be seeking a 30-34 per cent stake in the project. "We will be involved in this project from beginning to end, with a possibility to make decisions on all matters of importance for the project throughout its service life. This has to be done because the project is implemented in Bulgarian territory and the nuclear risk cover applies to the territory of our country," Petkova pointed out.
