Poland wants to prevent nuclear project delay

The Ministry of Climate and Environment is preparing new regulations that are to shorten the schedule of nuclear power plant construction by a year or year and a half, and decrease the costs connected to its localization.

The revision of the Act on investment in nuclear energy sector and accompanying investments, aka the nuclear special act, is to speed-up the investment process and by doing so, limit the risks of delay. Poland is to have its first nuclear reactor in 2033. The act is also to curb the localization costs by limiting it to no more than PLN 50 mln for every localization survey.
