It said the company would build a reactor frame, vapor generator, turbine and power generator for the Belene NPP.

Atomstroyexport, Russia's state nuclear power equipment and service export monopoly, won the tender in 2005 for the Belene contract, worth around 4 billion euros ($5.8 billion).

The French-German consortium Areva-Siemens is also involved in the project.
