SOFIA (Bulgaria), September 11 (SeeNews) - Bulgaria's Kozloduy nuclear power plant has signed a 1.95 million levs ($1.10 million/ 997,000 euro) deal with local company ElectroService for scheduled maintenance of the system for control of the parameters of the water circulating in the primary circuits of its two operating reactors.

The contract was signed on September 4, Kozloduy NPP said in a notice. 

The contract also envisages repairs, delivery of spare parts along with the development of measures for improving the reliability of the equipment. 

EnergoService was the sole bidder in the tender procedure opened by the power plant. 

Sofia-based EnergoService, established in 2005, maintains the Radiation Monitoring Systems (RMS) on Unit 5 and Unit 6 Ventilation Stack 1 and Ventilation Stack 2 and Auxiliary Building Ventilation Stack in Kozloduy NPP, according to information published on its website. 

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.
