Jacek Sasin, a deputy prime minister and the state assets minister, said that a major issue will be the choice of an appropriate site for the project.
Poland plans to build three nuclear power plants under the Polish Nuclear Energy Programme. The locations of the other two have already been chosen.
"I think the next few months will see decisions regarding a third nuclear plant, primarily as to its location, and subsequently the contractor," Sasin said on Polish Radio.
Competing for contracts at Poland's two other planned nuclear plants are the US firm Westinghouse, France's EDF power enterprise and South Korea’s KHNP energy corporation.
The plants are to be located in Choczew in northern Poland and Patnow, which lies in the centre of the country.
The Patnow project is still awaiting decisions concerning the technology it will use and the contractor. (PAP)
