President Andrzej Duda and his U.S. counterpart Donald Trump announced in Washington on June 24 that America would build a nuclear power plant in Poland.
“The consultations are ongoing about the inter-governmental agreement between Poland and the U.S., which will allow starting to design this major undertaking,” Naimski said.
“We are looking for a partner that will remain with and in Poland for at least 60 years,” he added.
“The point is to build nuclear plants generating 6-9 GW of power, which will allow the transformation of the Polish energy mix. We have to have stable energy sources, which will also allow us to develop renewable sources, such as wind power and photovoltaic,” Naimski was quoted as saying by PAP.
