PM Boyko Borissov: The position of Bulgarian government on Belene NPP has changed because we now have serious offers20 September 2019 | 13:08 | FOCUS News Agency
He said there was a period when the state abandoned the idea of constructing the plant, but now the situation has changed. "At the time, we didn't know what the escalation index was, how much the plant was worth. We had enormous obligations and a court of arbitration in Paris. We did not have a contract signed to know what the price would be and how much it would cost over time. And that's why we were against it," the prime minister explained. He reminded the MPs that among the 12 or 13 bids there are some really worth considering. "On the one hand, it is the State Energy State Company, and on the other hand, the South Korean Nuclear and [the consortium of] Rosatom, meanwhile we have paid the reactors and saved 90 million in interest, and in reality the hypothesis is now quite different from what it was about Belene NPP,” the prime minister said.
