The article focuses on a £4 billion deal signed by Bulgaria and Russia to build a nuclear plant in northern Bulgaria. The 2GW plant, due on-stream in 2014, will be owned and operated by Belene Power. Bulgaria agreed to close two units of its existing Russian-built nuclear plant at Kozloduy on safety grounds ahead of European Union entry, but Belene chairman Yordan Georgiev insisted the new plant would be the best European project in terms of safety.
