Gavin Dobbing of AMEC:
Poland is developing an impressive civil nuclear power program and companies such as AMEC can support this exciting development by providing expert personnel, training and insight on nuclear issues.

As a global nuclear company, AMEC possesses all the key characteristics of a good partner for Poland—independence from reactor vendors; an established track record of engineering and project management in the international nuclear industry; and a large pool of nuclear-trained professionals who have proved their ability and commitment to transferring their knowledge to others.

The basic ingredients of support infrastructure for safe nuclear power already exist within Poland—independent regulatory bodies, professional and engineering institutions, major infrastructure project experience and complex plant operations, for example. These will extend over the next few years to apply their practices in a nuclear power generation environment. AMEC can support the rapid development of this capability as our experience of similar challenges stretches back to the 1950s—the very beginning of nuclear power generation. Trading as the National Nuclear Corporation or its predecessors, AMEC was involved in the design and build of every civil nuclear power station in the UK. We have supported them through their life and are now supporting new nuclear build in the UK. AMEC has remained technology independent but knowledgeable of all Generation III/III+ reactor designs and has successfully supported nuclear projects in the UK, Canada, South Africa, the Czech Republic, Russia, Romania and Bulgaria.

Although much of the Polish program will be about developing the capabilities of Polish companies and personnel, many roles will be temporary in nature. Where there is no long-term benefit of building local capability, short-term support from the international nuclear industry will be required. AMEC is one of the few companies that can call upon more than 2,000 nuclear engineers from across its global operations.

Nuclear power is an exciting development in Poland and will be a continuous source of zero-carbon electricity. It is essential that Polish personnel and companies have full control and oversight of the program. Companies such as AMEC can help Poland by providing access to the knowledge and skills that have been built up over more than 60 years of safe nuclear operations.
