Rosatom, Framatome and GE work together in Belene new build project

Russian state nuclear corporation Rosatom has signed two agreements with France’s Framatome and US-based General Electric Steam Power in relation to the investor selection procedure for the Belene nuclear power station project in northern Bulgaria.

Rosatom said that the three companies will cooperate in taking part in the eventual tender for the construction of two nuclear power units at the Belene site.

According to a statement, if Rosatom becomes an investor in the project, GE would become a partner by delivering its Arabelle turbine-generator set and turbine hall equipment, while Framatome would be a “key partner” to supply instrumentation and control systems.
