WESTINGHOUSE AND BECHTEL TO COLLABORATE ON POLAND’S FIRST NPP
The agreement sets out a plan for the delivery of the project and confirms the implementation of the next major stage of Poland’s flagship nuclear energy initiative.
The Polish government selected the Westinghouse AP1000® reactor technology for its first-ever nuclear energy program in November. Significant licensing and engineering work is already underway on the project that will deliver reliable, clean and safe power to Poland. The action today lays the foundation for the design activity to start later this year and the construction contract in 2025.
The AP1000 is the only operating Generation III+ reactor with fully passive safety systems, modular construction design and has the smallest footprint per MWe on the market.
