Kozloduy NPP – New Build implements an environmental monitoring network at the approved site

14 Oct 2021

The project company Kozloduy NPP – New Build. continues with the implementation of the imperative requirements, conditions and measures set in the Order of the Bulgarian Nuclear Regulatory Agency (BNRA) for approval of the site for the nuclear facility and the Environmental Impact Assessment decision. Based on these key administrative acts, a ‘Program for permanent monitoring of Site № 2, approved for the deployment of a new nuclear facility – nuclear power plant’ has been developed and agreed.

To achieve the goals set in the Program, a monitoring network should be developed, which will ensure continuous monitoring and control of natural components and factors, as well as the anthropogenic phenomena around the Site.

Given the proximity of the approved site to the existing nuclear power plant, which has many years of experience in monitoring the components and environmental factors, the main requirement for the newly building monitoring network is that it must be optimally integrated with the existing one at the site of Kozloduy NPP.

In this regard, Kozloduy NPP – New Build held a tender procedure for selection of a contractor for the activities that will ensure the implementation of the monitoring network. On 08 October 2021, the Company signed a contract with the MGU-Energy Engineering Consortium for the realization of the project.

The consortium includes a team of highly qualified experts with proven professional experience and expertise in projects in the fields of geodesy and radiological monitoring. This in turn is a prerequisite for the successful implementation of highly specialized tasks within the Program, related to complex activities such as drilling, development of projects as part of the monitoring network, establishment of control points for sampling and delivery of specialized equipment. The quality deployment of equipment for monitoring of factors and components of the environment and human health is a responsible task, the successful implementation of which is of fundamental importance for the protection of the environment and the reliable and safe operation of future nuclear builds located at the Kozloduy NPP site.
