Westinghouse Electric Company has announced the launch of Front-End Engineering and Design (FEED) work under a grant from the United States Trade and Development Agency (USTDA) to progress the nuclear energy program in Poland. The FEED will be a major step forward in bringing the project closer to realization. The preparation of the FEED will be mostly funded by the United States government.
“We thank the Polish and U.S. governments for the IGA and for U.S. support in leading the FEED financing. The FEED activities are a major step in advancing Poland’s nuclear power plant program, and Westinghouse looks forward to presenting the Polish government with the most advanced and competitive technology offer for this very important project,” said Elias Gedeon, Senior Vice President, Commercial Operations at Westinghouse.
Long-term strategic cooperation between Poland, the United States and Westinghouse would improve energy security for the country, help radically reduce CO2 emissions and maintain reliable electricity generation following the retirement of older coal-fired units.
