The procedure for choosing a strategic investor in the Belene NPP project was published today in the Official Journal of the EU.

This marks the start of the 90-day deadline for submitting applications for participation in the project. The procedure itself is to be completed within 12 months.

By a decision of parliament and the third Boyko Borissov cabinet from June 2018, the search for a way to implement the Belene NPP project was reopened, a project that was shut down in 2012 by the first Boyko Borissov cabinet.
