November 20 (SeeNews) - Bulgaria’s sole nuclear power plant (NPP) Kozloduy said on Monday it has successfully completed the first stage of planned tests of its 1000 MW Unit 6 related to the project for increasing the unit’s capacity to 104%.
All tests carried out on November 18 and November 19 were completed successfully and proved the unit’s capability to work at increased capacity, the power plant said in a statement.
The unit’s capacity will now be gradually increased to 104% in order to carry out the next stages of the planned tests.
The power plant's other 1000 MW unit, Unit 5, operates at 100% of its capacity.
In October, Unit 6 was reconnected to the grid following a planned annual maintenance shutdown, during which the unit was recharged with fresh nuclear fuel.
Kozloduy NPP remained with two operational units of 1000 MW each - Units 5 and 6 - after the government closed down four older units of 440 MW each to address nuclear safety concerns of the European Union prior to the country's accession to the bloc in 2007.
