Nuclear Power With the French?

Polska Grupa Energetyczna (PGE) and Electricité de France (EdF) have signed a memorandum on cooperation in nuclear energy to examine the possibility of forming a partnership to build Poland's first nuclear power station. They will also carry out joint analyses on building European pressurized reactors (EPR) in Poland, in particular with regard to construction of the first generating unit by 2020. The EPR is a modern third-generation nuclear reactor designed by the Areva company of France.

PGE managers say the agreement does not necessarily mean EdF will be its partner in the project to build Poland's first nuclear power station. PGE is also in talks with other companies that build nuclear power stations and expects to sign similar agreements with them in the near future. PGE managers say a partner for the project will be selected by October 2010.

PGE is to have a 51-percent stake in the company responsible for the nuclear project. The Polish energy producer wants to put into operation two 3,000 MW power stations, with the first generating unit to be completed by 2020 and the next ones at two- or three-year intervals.
