Environmental Impact Assessment for the Decommissioning of Units 1 to 4
Kozloduy Project Management Unit (KPMU)
Daryll Jones, Kozloduy NPP, KPMU, 3321 Kozloduy, Bulgaria. Tel: 359 973 7 64 22. Fax: 359 973 7 45 08. E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
In November 1999, the Bulgarian Government and the European Commission signed a Memorandum of Understanding in which the Bulgarian Government undertook a firm commitment to close and decommission Units 1 - 4 of the Kozloduy Nuclear Power Plant (KNPP). The European Community (through PHARE support) and a number of EU members and Switzerland have contributed to the Kozloduy International Decommissioning Support Fund (KIDSF), which is managed and administrated by European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD). One of the purposes of this Fund is to finance, or co-finance preparation and implementation of selected projects, which would require procurement of goods, works and services for modification of existing plant systems and construction of new decommissioning facilities in an environmentally safe and cost effective manner.
A Project Management Unit (PMU) has been established and is in operation on the Kozloduy NPP Site to manage the selected projects.
An updated Decommissioning Strategy has been established; it has been approved by KNPP and the Bulgarian Authorities in June 2006. This Strategy is based on a continuous and immediate dismantling. Dismantling can be started only after the Issuance of a Decommissioning Permit by the Bulgarian Nuclear Regulatory Agency (BNRA). Prior to issue of this permit, an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) for the decommissioning shall be prepared. The Decision made by the Ministry of Environment and Waters based on this EIA is a prerequisite for the Decommissioning Permit Issuance.
The assignment has to be carried out in compliance with the relevant Environmental Standards and Regulations of Bulgaria and in compliance with the EBRD`s Environmental and Public Information Policies. Under the EBRD Environmental Policy the Decommissioning of a NPP would be screened as A-level, requiring an Environmental Impact Assessment and public consultation as set out in the Bank`s Environmental Policy. This invitation for Expressions of Interest relates to this EIA and the associated public consultation.
The EIA process and the EIA document should meet the requirements set out in the Bulgarian legislation and in the EU EIA Directive. Public information and consultation should meet the requirements as set out in the EIA Directive and in the EBRD`s Environmental Policy and Public Information Policy, both of which can be found on EBRD`s website (www.ebrd.com).
The Consultant will be responsible for the entire EIA process (Public information and Public discussions included) and the preparation of all necessary documentation (particularly the EIA report), in both Bulgarian and English language.
Assignment Start Date and Duration
Anticipated start date is August 2008 for a duration of about 11 months
