Bulgaria, Slovakia and Lithuania need an additional EUR 2.5bl for the decommissioning of eight non-upgradeable nuclear reactors, according to a report of the European Court of Auditors.

In a separate statement, the committee also noted shortcomings of the management of the decommissioning project at the Kozloduy NPP. They commented on project delays, insufficiently reliable decommissioning cost estimates, insufficient identification of decommissioning activities to be performed, and the absence of radioactive waste inventories.

The ECA draws attention to project delays,insufficiently reliable decommissioningcost estimates, insufficient identification of decommissioning activi­ties to be performed, and the absence of radioactive waste inventories.

Other flaws identified by the audit institution are the failure to introduce adequate monitoring mechanisms for the implementation of pre-decommissioning tasks.
