"The Greece-Bulgaria #interconnector and the installation of small modular reactors give Bulgaria greater energy independence", said Francis Fannon, US Assistant Secretary, Bureau of Energy Resources, who was on an official visit in Bulgaria. In Sofia he met with Teodora Georgieva, the Executive Officer of #ICGB. Fannon praised Bulgaria’s leadership for the progress in the #construction of the interconnector with Greece, emphasizing on the importance of the successful implementation of the project and its role for Bulgaria’s transformation into a regional gas hub.
Assistant Secretary Fannon encouraged Bulgaria's efforts and commitment to the project at the highest level. "Despite the constant challenges, Bulgaria demonstrates steady #progress. The project has significant support as it is of vital strategic importance for the region", he said, congratulating ICGB on its efforts to catch-up with the delay of several months.
Georgieva assured the American delegation that the construction works are carried out under strict control: "The team makes great efforts to achieve the stable and smooth implementation of the project which is a real cause for Bulgaria, the region and for myself", she added.
