Who will build nuclear power plants in Poland? In the game USA and Korea
Jacek Sasin’s nuclear tour is underway. After his visit to the USA, the head of the Ministry of State Assets is getting ready to fly to South Korea.
– I am planning further talks, this time with a Korean partner, but at the same time I want to make it very clear that these projects, the American project or a potential American project, because at the moment we are talking about a government project, and let me remind you, the government project of nuclear energy envisages construction two nuclear power plants – Jacek Sasin said in the Sejm on Wednesday.
He reminded that one location for the nuclear power plant is already indicated.
– We are on the eve of the announcement of a strategic partner for the construction of this power plant. There are many indications, although there is no decision yet, but I can say after this visit to the United States that it will be the American Westinghouse Sasin said.
He admitted that regardless of this, the government is also looking for opportunities to strengthen the nuclear potential in terms of energy.

– And here, too, perhaps it will be possible in the near future to present another project, implemented in parallel with this government project, a business project implemented jointly with partners from South Korea. These talks will take place in the near future. They are probably very advanced, regardless of the planned visit. A different, separate and parallel government project will probably be finalized, informed Jacek Sasin.
We wrote earlier in Business Insider Polska about the possibility of reconciling the interests of Americans and Koreans.
The American offer for the construction of a nuclear power plant in Poland, cooperation within the International Atomic Energy Agency and activities for energy security were the main topics of talks during the meeting of Minister of Climate and Environment Anna Moskva and Jacek Sasin with the US Secretary of Energy Jennifer Granholm. The talks took place on October 23 in Washington.
– According to the Polish Nuclear Power Program, our country will choose the technologies for the construction of the first nuclear power plant in Poland by the end of the year. We want to meet this deadline so that the start of construction in 2026 is realistic. This means that the first reactor could start operating as early as 2033. The Polish nuclear program provides for the construction of 6 reactors to be commissioned consecutively every two years, Anna Moskwa said after the talks.
In October 2020, a Polish-American agreement on cooperation in the field of civil nuclear energy was concluded. The last element of this agreement is the decision whether the Polish government will accept the final report of the American side on the construction of a nuclear power plant. The Americans had 18 months to prepare the relevant documents and offer.

In mid-September this year. the US ambassador to Poland, Mark Brzezinski and the president of Westinghouse Polska, presented the “Conceptual and executive report on cooperation in the field of Civil Nuclear Energy”. As the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage informed at the time, the report “is a detailed bilateral road map leading to the construction of six large-scale reactors based on American technology.”
In addition to the Americans, the French (EDF) and the Koreans (KHNP) also submitted their offers for the construction of nuclear power plants.
