Representatives of Polska Grupa Energetyczna (PGE), ZE PAK, and South Korea's KHNP, which are all entities involved in the Patnów nuclear power plant project, met on 25 January with Poland’s president Andrzej Duda and the minister for State Assets Jacek Sasin to define the next stages of what is being described as a breakthrough investment in the country’s power structure. A consortium of PGE, ZE PAK and KHNP plans to build Poland's first commercial nuclear power plant.
"Diversification of energy sources has been one of our priorities on which we have worked very actively over the past few years. The final outcome of this process will be a power system based, among other sources, on modern, safe nuclear power plants. This solution will enable Poland to achieve full sovereignty and guarantee access to a stable energy source that meets the needs of our dynamically developing economy," said president Andrzej Duda.
The completion date for the Patnów investment has not yet been set, however the parties involved in the project suggest it is reasonable to consider the unofficial deadline of ten to thirteen years as very plausible.
