Westinghouse and Bechtel to develop first nuclear power plant in Poland

US energy company and engineering companies, Westinghouse and Bechtel will form a consortium to design and build Poland’s first nuclear power plant, following an agreement signing between Polish Nuclear Power Plants (PEJ) and the US companies on 25 May in Warsaw.

PEJ is a state-owned special vehicle company for the construction of the country’s first nuclear power plant (NPP) in the northern Pomerania region. 

The agreement signed last week outlines the terms of cooperation between PEJ and the Westinghouse-Bechtel consortium. These rules will apply to subsequent commercial contracts for the construction of the NPP.

“The Westinghouse-Bechtel team is an experienced and proven partner, the best proof of which is the successful connection to the network of the first unit with the AP1000 reactor in the USA and the finalisation of works related to the commissioning of the second unit. Four other nuclear units with AP1000 reactors are already in commercial operation around the world,” said Patrick Fragman, President of Westinghouse.

The agreement defines the scope of responsibility and defines the key rules and conditions to be followed by the partners in the implementation of the project. Additionally, it sets out a cooperation framework for the two American companies in areas such as nuclear facility design, implementation of the assumed work schedule and project control. The leading consortium partner at the design stage of the project will be Westinghouse, whilst Bechtel will take over leadership during construction.

“This is an exciting moment for Poland and we are honoured to support its nuclear ambitions. Bechtel brings more than 70 years of experience in the nuclear industry to this partnership. Together with Westinghouse, we look forward to working with PEJ and Polish suppliers and construction companies to provide clean, reliable energy that Poland needs,” said Craig Albert, President and Chief Operating Officer of Bechtel.
