Poland to order nuclear reactor in 3-4 years: minister
Last Updated(Beijing Time):2009-02-14 14:10
Poland will begin training nuclear system operators next year and order a reactor within 3 to 4 years in order to be able to launch a nuclear power station in 2020, Deputy Economy Minister Adam Szejnfeld said on Friday.

Szejnfeld met with officials from France's Ministry for Energy and European Affairs and with French reactor producer, the Areve group, in Paris on Wednesday.

On Tuesday the minister met officials of those firms interested in investing in Poland's energy sector, Electricite de France and GDF Suez, and Societe Generale bank.

"It takes 3-4 years to order a reactor and 5 years to order a turbine. This means that we should submit orders in 3-4 years at the latest," Szejnfeld was quoted as saying by Polish news agency PAP.

Another challenge facing Poland is the creation of technical supervision and power station security, he said.

Poland has enough time to select the best technology provider and the best financing system, the minister added.

On Jan. 13, the Polish government decided that two nuclear power plants will be built in Poland by 2020.
