Bechtel to partner Westinghouse in construction of Poland’s first nuclear power plant
22 September 2023
US contractor Bechtel and Westinghouse Electric Company have signed a formal agreement to partner on the design and construction of Poland’s first nuclear power plant.
The plant, at the Lubiatowo-Kopalino site in Pomerani, is estimated to cost US$20 billion.
The consortium and Polish utility Polskie Elektrownie Jądrowe are expected to sign an engineering services contract next week.
The Polish government selected the Westinghouse AP1000® reactor technology for its first-ever nuclear energy program in November 2022.
Licensing and engineering work is already underway on the project.
