Two workers were killed and two others were injured on December 16 in an incident at the construction site of a radioactive waste storage facility near Kozloduy NPP. One of the injured was transported to the hospital in Pleven, the other was examined and is already home.
The incident has nothing to do with radioactive and radiation safety. It is an incident at a construction site.
