SOFIA (Bulgaria), October 14 (SeeNews) - Bulgarian Kozloduy nuclear power plant said it has awarded a 8.3 million levs ($4.9 million/4.3 million euro) contract for replacement of electrical equipment to Consortium NPP Modernisations.

The deal consists of dismantling the 6 kV complex distribution systems (CDS) in two circulating pump stations and the unified auxiliary corps of the plant's EP-2 site, as well as everything from design to putting into operation of the eight new sections, related ventilation systems and staff training, the NPP said in a project document published on Wednesday.

The sections themselves are CDS with a nominal voltage of 6.3 kV, which power circulating water pump stations of the plant's two operating units of 1000 MW each, Kozloduy said in an e-mailed statement in response to a SeeNews enquiry on Thursday.

Consortium NPP Modernisations consists of two Bulgarian-registered companies - Sevlievo-based ABB Power Grids Bulgaria, owned by Switzerland's Hitachi Energy Ltd., and Sofia-based KMC EOOD, the project document showed.

The contract was signed on October 1. The value of the deal does not include value added tax.

There were six bidders in the tender opened in October 2020.
