Areva to Cooperate with Polimex on Poland’s First Nuclear Plant
April 26, 2011
French nuclear power giant Areva, competing in the tender for nuclear technologies delivery for the planned atomic power plant in Poland, could offer stakes in uranium mines to Polish companies in order to guarantee stable supplies of fuel to the plant, Areva manager Adam Rozwadowski told reporters.
Areva signed an agreement on potential cooperation over the construction of the first nuclear power plant in Poland with listed builder Polimex.
Poland wants to build a 3,000 megawatt nuclear station by 2020, and a second 3,000 MW plant by 2030.
PGE Power Group has been named by the Polish government to run the project.
A formal tender for the technology supplier will be launched in June or July
