Bulgaria: Bulgarian Ministry of Economy, Energy and Tourism, in collaboration with ESRI Bulgaria OOD, will create a special critical infrastructure register for the energy assets in the country such as substations, compressor stations, gas distribution stations, large hydropower plants, etc. ESRI Bulgaria OOD will be donating 100 000 BGN (about 50 000 EUR) for the project.
All the critical infrastructure assets that have to be protected from terrorism, natural disasters and emergency situations will be visualised on a special geospatial information platform. The system will be connected to Civil Protection, Interior Ministry, Emergency Room, Fire Department and with the emergency number 112. The first stage of the project will integrate the GIS systems of the Electricity Transmission System Operator (ESO), Bulgartransgaz (the gas transmission company) and the large hydroelectric plants.
