American-Japanese corporation Westinghouse is the third company to express an interest in building a nuclear power plant in Poland, after France’s EdF and American-Japanese consortium GE Hitachi.

The Westinghouse Electric Company, whose shareholders include Toshiba, is a world leader in the nuclear power sector. The company launched the first reactor in the United States in 1957 and supplies technology for over half the nuclear power plants in the United States.

The Polish government wants the country’s first nuclear power plant to be up and running by 2020. The cost of the project will depend on what technology and partners will be chosen for the project by the managers of the Polish Energy Group (PGE), which is formally in charge of carrying out Poland’s nuclear program. The choice will be made at the end of this year. The cost of the first nuclear power plant is estimated at no less than 9 billion euros. The final choice of the technology will be made by the government, in consultation with the Polish Energy Group.

The government plans to build two nuclear power plans in the country, with a total capacity of around 6,000 MW.
