Nuclear power to come to Poland by 2022

16 August 2010 - Poland’s Economy Ministry has approved a nuclear power plant project to be implemented in 2022, two years later than originally planned.
 
"PGE, the largest power producing company in Poland, is going to open the first power unit only in 2022 - two years later than stated in the initial plan," deputy Economy Minister Hanna Trojanowska announced. "Thanks to cooperation between PGE, the Economy Ministry and National Atomic Energy Agency, we managed to define the main problems concerning the construction of the plant and how to divide the tasks," added Trojanowska.
 
PGE is planning to build two nuclear power stations in Poland, each producing 300 MW. The company wants 51 per cent shares in the consortium.
 
In order to start the investment special regulations on nuclear safety will have to be adopted. The National Atomic Energy Agency will soon turn into the Nuclear Safety and Radiological Protection Commission which will issue permits for nuclear investments in Poland.
 
"We want to make sure that nuclear power plants built in Poland will meet the highest EU or US safety standards," said Trojanowska, giving assurances that a scientific centre for nuclear research will also be built soon and a national plan of nuclear waste disposal adopted.
