Sergei Tsochev, member of the Board of Directors of the Bulgarian State Enterprise Radioactive Waste (SERAW) said that so far 590 million euros has been invested in the activities related to the decommissioning of the first four reactors of nuclear power plant Kozloduy, but additional 600 million euros is needed to complete the process by 2030.
Tsochev said that these activities are financed through two funds: the decommissioning fund and the radioactive waste fund, while the part of the activities was also financed through Kozloduy International Decommissioning Support Fund (KIDSF). At the end of 2017, both Bulgarian funds amounted to some 800 million euros, but the amount also includes funds needed for the decommissioning of units 5 and 6, which are still in operation.
