Bulgaria Attracting Investor to Build Two New Units at TPP Maritsa East 2

, Uncategorized

Bulgaria’s government is considering attracting a private investor to build two units at the coal-fired power plant Maritsa East 2.

The government is considering two options – financing the units’ construction with a loan which the plant would take, which is considered too risky, or incorporating the two units into a new legal entity and seeking a private investor for them, news daily Dnevnik quoted economy minister Delyan Dobrev as saying on Tuesday.

Last year, Maritsa East 2 completed upgrades at unit 5 and 6 worth a total of 85.6 million euro ($112.7 million), which were fully financed by the plant.
