Bulgaria obtains derogation from EU sanctions to ensure safety of nuclear power plant

Bulgaria’s Council of Ministers approved a derogation from the European Union sanctions that prohibit the import of certain parts, materials and services in connection with the war in Ukraine.

In particular, these parts refer to the necessary material for the normal operation and the annual planned maintenance of the nuclear power plant of Kozloduy.

The Minister of Energy, Rosen Hristov said that this decision is of critical importance for the security of the power plant.

“These are spare parts, services and materials for which we have not yet found alternative suppliers,” he said during a press conference. “We are continuing the process of selecting new contractors.”

In the meantime, the country is acquiring all the necessary materials to ensure the safe operation of the nuclear power plant and the energy security of the country.
