I expect the Bulgarian government to solve the issue with the license of Belene nuclear power plant as quickly as possible, Bulgaria’s President Rumen Radev said during his visit to the town of Kuzloduy. Nuclear energy is strategic for Bulgaria, but people are the most important asset for this industry, President Radev underlined. One third of Bulgaria’s energy mix is produced in Kuzloduy NPP, Rumen Radev reminded and added that each day of delay is detrimental to the Belene NPP project. The construction of a nuclear power plant takes a decade and requires huge investments and well-trained specialists. “We can be proud of our staff that Bulgaria has trained for decades”, President Radev pointed out and said that now it is difficult to attract young people to work at the nuclear power plant.
