SOFIA, August 22 (Itar-Tass) — The Bulgarian government on Wednesday decided to remove the Belene nuclear power plant from the list of strategic facilities vital for national security, the press service of the Bulgarian cabinet of ministers reports.
Policemen who used to guard the construction site will be transferred to the towns of Staraya Zagora and Khaskovo.
The Bulgarian government made a decision to withdraw from a project for the construction of the Belene nuclear power station late in March this year. It provided for the construction of a nuclear power station with two nuclear power units with an aggregate rating of more than 2,000 Megawatts.
The Russian company Atomstrojexport won the bidding for the station’s construction in 2005.
