Representatives from EnergoService and Hyundai Engineering & Construction held discussions at the EnergoService office today. The main focus of the discussions was on exploring opportunities for collaboration and provision of engineering services by EnergoService in relation to the construction of future nuclear power facilities in Bulgaria.

 

Representatives of EnergoService are participating in the Symposium for Westinghouse suppliers for the construction project of the seventh unit of Kozloduy Nuclear Power Plant

More than 50 Bulgarian companies participated in the Symposium for Westinghouse suppliers for the construction project of the seventh unit of the Kozloduy Nuclear Power Plant with AP1000® (Advanced Passive Reactor) technology. The event took place on February 20th and 21st, 2024, at the Hilton Sofia Hotel, in partnership with the American Chamber of Commerce in Bulgaria

The Symposium was opened by Rumen Radev – Minister of Energy, Delyan Dobrev – Chairman of the Energy Commission, National Assembly, Kenneth Merten – US Ambassador, Alex Nestor – Chairman of the Board of Directors of Kozloduy Nuclear Power Plant-New Builds and Ivan Mihaylov, CEO of AmCham. Senior managers from Westinghouse such as Sean Jones, Oscar Pratt, Ivan Pironkov, Tim Mediat, and Pierre Lepertier provided a detailed overview of the AP1000 technology, the company’s projects in operation in the USA and China, as well as the delivery process and requirements for achieving mutual success

The program continued today with meetings with Bulgarian companies from the energy sector, which could potentially be partners in the project’s future implementation. EnergoService is one of the five companies with which Westinghouse signed a Memorandum of Cooperation at the end of last year, and it is also on their approved suppliers list.

Contract Confirms the AP1000® Reactor as the Most Advanced and Proven Technology Available to Serve the Need for Competitive, Clean and Secure Energy

Cranberry Township, PA, June 14, 2023 – Westinghouse Electric Company today announced it signed a Front-End Engineering and Design (FEED) contract with Bulgaria’s Kozloduy NPP-Newbuild for a new AP1000® reactor to be located at the Kozloduy site. Work is commencing per the agreement to assess Bulgarian industry and the existing infrastructure at the Kozloduy site for its potential to support the construction of an AP1000 reactor.

“We are pleased to begin work to deliver the world’s most advanced, Generation III+ reactor technology to provide clean and reliable baseload energy for our customer and the people of Bulgaria,” said David Durham, Energy Systems President for Westinghouse. “We thank Kozloduy NPP-Newbuild and the Bulgarian Parliament for their confidence in our industry-leading, Nth of a kind technology. We commend Kozloduy NPP-Newbuild for their thoughtful approach to best-in-class project delivery that will ensure high localization of the work.”

Earlier this year, both entities signed a memorandum of understanding establishing a joint working group to plan deployment of the AP1000 reactor in Bulgaria. The working group is evaluating regulatory, licensing and design requirements and developing a streamlined execution path in support of Bulgaria’s energy strategy. The FEED contract is the first step in delivering the AP1000 reactor project.

There are currently two Russian-designed VVER-1000 reactors in operation at the Kozloduy site. Westinghouse signed a 10-year agreement in December 2022 to supply nuclear fuel to one of the units starting in 2024. The fuel will be supplied out of Westinghouse’s fabrication site in Västerås, Sweden and is the only fully Western option to Russian supply.

The AP1000 advanced reactor is the only operating Generation III+ reactor with fully passive safety systems, modular construction design and has the smallest footprint per MWe on the market. In addition to one AP1000 reactor operating and another nearing completion at the Vogtle site in Georgia, four AP1000 units are currently setting operational performance records in China with six additional reactors under construction. Poland recently selected the AP1000 technology for its nuclear energy program and nine units have been announced for Ukraine. The technology is under consideration at multiple other sites in Central and Eastern Europe, the United Kingdom, and in the United States.
