Nuclear Upgrade Bid

SOFIA () -- Bulgaria will call a tender this year for modernization of two nuclear reactors to improve their reliability and efficiency, energy officials said Wednesday.

Energy Committee deputy chairman Roumen Ovcharov said the U.S. Export-Import bank was backing the offer of Westinghouse Electric Corp. for upgrading two Soviet-designed, 1,000-megawatt reactors at the trouble-plagued Kozlodui nuclear plant.
