Poland will consider French investment in nuclear plant

French state-controlled power group EDF this month offered to build four to six nuclear reactors in Poland, with a total installed capacity of 6.6-9.9 GW.

Pawel Soloch, the head of the National Security Bureau, said the offer was discussed during a meeting in Paris on Wednesday between Andrzej Duda, the Polish president, and his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron.

“There was a declaration on our part about the readiness to consider the French proposal, to appreciate the fact that the French proposal has a European dimension,” said Soloch, who accompanied Duda in Paris.

“Since this topic was discussed at such a high level, it shows that we take the French proposal seriously, remembering that we have signed a cooperation deal in this area with the United States and this agreement is being implemented,” he added.

According to the Rzeczpospolita daily, EDF, a French energy company, would like to build Poland’s first nuclear plant entirely on its own and could support the project financially.

The cost of the six planned reactors would come to EUR 48.5 billion.
