Current new build NPP projects

There are two ongoing projects for constructing new nuclear power plants in the country:

Belene NPP is a project started in the 1970s, which was originally planned for 4 WWER-1000 V-320 reactors with the possibility of expanding with 2 more reactors for a total installed capacity of 6000 MW. 

The original project was stopped in 1991 due to lack of funding and a new project was started in 2004 with the plan for two Gen III 1000 MW reactors (type A-92). 


Later the A-92 project was stopped in 2012 also by financial reasons but was resumed again by the Government in 2018. There is an ongoing procedure for selection of a strategic investor for continuation of this project. 

Kozloduy NPP - New Builds is a newer project, that started in 2012 based on a Government principal decision to build a new nuclear capacity of around 1200 MW latest generation on Kozloduy site. 

Site selection activities are completed, and the site is approved in 2020. 

Currently an analysis of various approaches to utilize the approved site in an efficient manner is ongoing. More about this project can be found here.
