Poland’s PM has suggested that Americans engagement in Polish nuclear projects will go beyond the one project in Pomerania, which goes against earlier suggestions about being being open to different technological partners, but is in line with the original project idea.

“We have already made the decision to build the first nuclear power plant with three units. We are also considering continuing cooperation with the Americans in this area,” PM Donald Tusk said during a press conference in Washington.

According to the Polish Nuclear Power Program, Poland will build all of its 6-9 GW reactors in one technology only due to the economies of scale. However, the program is to be updated and the previous and current governments have suggested they were open to talks with various technological partners, including from the US, France and South Korea. At the same time, an agreement on the construction of a power plant in Pomerania between Polish Nuclear Power Plants, Bechtel and Westinghouse is being negotiated.
