Justification of possibility to extend Kozloduy NPP Unit 5 lifetime

Kozloduy NPP lifetime extension is a strategic project, as the nuclear power plant is the main electrical
energy source in Bulgaria that provides over 1/3 of the total annual output. It is also a unique
experience of interaction between the Russian (Rusatom Service JSC, Rosenergoatom Concern JSC,
VNIIAES JSC, OKB Gidropress JSC, Atomtechenergo JSC, etc.) and the Bulgarian (Kozloduy NPP, Risk

Engineering JSC) companies. The project uniqueness is also reflected in highly compressed
implementation deadlines ‒ from November 2014 to January 2017.

Goal of project

Develop justification of Kozloduy NPP Unit 5 lifetime extension up to 60 years, analyses, calculations and quantitative assessment of SSC residual lifetime.
