Background information on Romanian nuclear sector
Romania has two nuclear reactors at its plant in Cernavoda, which use Canadian CANDU-6 technology. Cernavoda Nuclear Power Plant has a total installed capacity of 1,400 MW and an annual average power production of 5.613 GWh meaning 18% of the total national output of Romania. The plant is well-run - one of the most efficient CANDU plants in the world. Cernavoda NPP is run by the utility company Nuclearelectrica, a state-owned company. Nuclearelectrica has two major projects planned for the next few years: the construction of the 3 and 4 units at Cernavoda (project expected to cost around 6.5 billion Euro) and the life plant extension for Cernavoda unit 1 (project expected to cost around 2 billion Euro). In addition, the Romanian Nuclear Agency and for Radioactive Waste is in planning stage for a Low and Intermediary Level Repository for radioactive waste, which has been estimated at 1.5 billion Euro.
