    Poland will have nuclear power in 2033 says minister

    September 14, 2023 - Robinson Marzanna


      Anna Lukaszewska-Trzeciakowska went to the US to hold talks with representatives of Westinghouse and Bechtel, Poland's partners in the NPP construction, about accelerating work on the investment.

      After the talks she told reporters: "I can assure you that we will meet the deadline for building a nuclear power plant and we will have electricity from the Polish nuclear power plant in (the northern region of - PAP) Pomorze in 2033.”

      Lukaszewska-Trzeciakowska said her talks with US partners were "very good" and that an agreement regarding the power plant design should be reached in the coming days.

      She also said that she had received a promise from the US Energy Ministry that the whole process would be sped up.

      "We had a slight delay on the American side, but it disappeared after the talks and we are optimistic," Lukaszewska-Trzeciakowska added.

      She also said that an environmental decision regarding the construction of the power plant is expected "very, very soon" and will be followed by "a location decision."

      Poland expects to start construction on its first nuclear plant using AP1000 Westinghouse technology in 2026. The first block, with a capacity of about 1.25 GW, is to be commissioned in 2033.

      Poland had earlier indicated the seaside location of Lubiatowo-Kopalino in the Choczewo commune as the preferred location for the first Polish nuclear power plant. (PAP)
