Westinghouse contemplates locating production of AP1000 reactors in Pomorskie


Westinghouse Electric Company, the US nuclear energy group, on 8 September signed an agreement with the Pomeranian Special Economic Zone (PSSE) to assess the potential for locating production of parts for the company’s new AP1000 nuclear power plant in the zone. The project could lead to the creation of approximately 500 new jobs.

According to Westinghouse, the PSSE could be an ideal location for a European production centre, especially if PGE, the state energy group that coordinates the Polish government’s nuclear energy programme, selected its AP1000 reactor as the preferred technology. But the plant could also supply other major nuclear-energy markets in Europe, such as the Czech Republic or Great Britain. Orders for its new reactor are reportedly already higher than for any other of the group’s III or III+ generation reactors, which could mean stable jobs "for decades", Westinghouse said.
