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) at the earliest possible dates. The Kozloduy International Decommissioning Support Fund (KIDSF) has been established and is administered by the 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, design and construction of decommissioning facilities, including the National Disposal Facility, in an environmentally safe and cost effective manner, definition and procurement of dismantling and decontamination technologies and equipment.

State Enterprise Radioactive Waste SE (SERAW) is responsible for the Kozloduy NPP Units 1-4 Decommissioning Programme and the National Disposal Facility.

A Decommissioning-Repository Project Management Unit (D-R PMU) has been established in order to assist SERAW in the administration and management of the projects notified below.

This General Procurement Notice is an update to the General Procurement Notice, published on 9th August 2014. It draws the attention to the following upcoming procurement activities:

Decommissioning Projects:

. Information Centre for Decommissioning (Project 20)
This project is for the design, construction, testing, furnishing and commissioning of SERAW Information Centre for the Decommissioning Project of KNPP Units 1-4. The project will identify new media forms, models and equipment required for the purposes of the information campaigns concerning/introducing the Decommissioning activities and will manage the procurement of these.

. Supply of a Decommissioning Management System (Project 22)
This project provides that the existing Decommissioning Management System (Hardware and Software) should be upgraded with an up-to-date and integrated system.

. Inventory, Treatment and Conditioning of Contaminated Soil (Project 23)
This project is to carry out a survey of the KNPP decommissioning site, Units 1 to 4, and further remediation of contaminated soil based on approach approved by the Client. The project includes: development of a methodology, characterization of the soils in accordance with this methodology and a proposal for potential strategies for storage or remediation.

. Concrete Core Sampling Analyses (Project 24)
This project is for the provision of services of a specialist contractor to carry out core sampling and analysis of concrete structures, e.g. the reactor pond walls and other structures which come into contact with contaminated water to determine the depth of any contamination to allow the decommissioning of the structures to be accurately planned.

. Supply of Equipment for Treatment of Accumulated Quantities of Radioactive Sludge at KNPP Units 1-4 (Project 28)
This project is for the supply of equipment for:
. Retrieval of the radioactive sludge and residues from the places, where they currently are and their feeding to the inlet of the treatment facility;
. Treatment of the radioactive sludge and residues and treatment of the generated secondary RAW into forms that will be suitable for further transportation, storage and/or disposal.

. The Supply and Installation of a Radiation Monitoring System at the Plasma Melting Facility (Project 32)
The project covers the supply of the equipment, materials and cables necessary for the RMS at the PMF site; the installation of the equipment and cables; system commissioning.

. Independent Infrastructure Separation between Kozloduy NPP and SERAW (Project 35)
This Project governs design, equipment supply, installation and commissioning of utilities, needed for the separation of the external grids of the technical infrastructure of the station-wide buildings and facilities of Kozloduy NPP from SERAW.

. Supply of Lifting and Transportation Equipment (Project 38)
This project is for the procurement of an Engine Powered Lift Truck having 25t to 30t loading capacity to ensure safety effective and economically efficient transport of dismantled materials.

. Back-up Power Supply for Units 1&2 and Dismantling of DGS-1 Equipment for Use of the Building for Decommissioning (Project 39 – Phase II)
The project includes:
. Design, supply of dismantling tools and facilities,
. Reconstruction of DGS-1 building; and
. Installation of the necessary equipment for the utilities of the building and their commissioning.

. Restoration of hydro-insulation of Turbine Hall and Reactor Building of KNPP Units 1-4. (Project 43)
This Project will cover the removal of the old damaged roof insulation of the Turbine Hall and Reactor Buildings and their replacement with a new insulation as per state-to-the-art technologies.

The estimated total budget for the above projects is 21 Million Euros.

National Disposal Facility (Repository) projects

. Site Preparation for Construction of National Disposal Facility:
Preparation of Radiana site for the subsequent construction of the National Disposal Facility, including provision of electrical supply, water supply, provision of heating supply from district network, provision of sewage and rainwater pond connection to discharge-points, implementation of relocation and rehabilitation works and site clean-up, removal of existing water channel, development of data base, design and construction of new and rehabilitation of existing road.

. Design of multi-layer test cover of NDF at Radiana site
This project includes development of conceptual and detailed design for two variants of multi-layer cover of National Disposal Facility and implementation of the detailed design at Radiana site.

The estimated total budget for the above projects is 13 Million Euros.

Tendering for contracts to be financed from grants of the KIDSF will be in line with the EBRD Procurement Policies and Rules and will be open to firms from eligible countries as of 01 August 2015: EU member states, Switzerland and the EBRD countries of operation.
