Kozloduy NPP-New Build, a project company owned by nuclear power plant Kozloduy, is inviting expressions of interest for the construction of a new reactor using Westinghouse’s AP1000 technology.

The company said that in a statement the procedure will be limited to prequalification of candidates and shortlisting during which the requested information submitted by the interested candidates shall be checked for compliance with the eligibility and prequalification criteria on a pass/fail basis. The shortlisted candidates will then be able to submit their offers in a separate new procedure. Candidates from Russia will not be considered and shortlisted, the project company said.

Candidates must have experience in the construction and commissioning of at least two nuclear units, along with designing nuclear or turbine island systems, structures and components and supplying and installing equipment for at least two nuclear reactors.

The new AP1000 reactor should be operational before 2035, with Westinghouse overseeing the overall design authority while delegating responsibilities for the design of individual plant systems and buildings.

Potential candidates will be able to submit expressions of interest by February 2.
