SOFIA (Bulgaria), September 30 (SeeNews) - Bulgaria's energy ministry said on Monday that the national nuclear regulator will grant an extension of the operational licence of nuclear power plant (NPP) Kozloduy's Unit 6 on October 1.

In 2017, the regulator granted a 10-year extension of the operational licence of the plant's other operational 1,000 MW unit, the energy ministry said in a statement.

NPP Kozloduy remained with two operational units of 1,000 MW each, Units 5 and 6, after Bulgaria closed down four older units of 440 MW each to address the nuclear safety concerns of the European Union prior to the country's accession to the bloc in 2007.
