The "PGE EJ1 – Baltic Nuclear Power Plant 6000 MW – Poland - Project Profile" is part of Timetric's database of 82,000+ construction projects. Our database includes a 10+ year archive of completed projects, full coverage of all global projects with a value greater than $25 million and key contact details for project managers, owners, consultants, contractors and bidders.
PGE EJ1, a company formed by Polska Grupa Energetyczna (PGE), ENEA SA, KGHM SA and Tauron Polska Energia SA, is planning to undertake the construction of a nuclear power plant in Poland.
The project involves the construction of a nuclear power plant with a capacity of 6,000MW. It is comprised of two units, each with a power generating capacity of 3,000MW.
The project will include the construction of a powerhouse, water treatment systems, a substation and access roads, the installation of a pressure vessel, turbines, generators and safety equipments, and the laying of transmission lines.
In February 2011, the Poland government approved two bills creating a legal framework for the nuclear power industry in the country.
In November 2011, PGE shortlisted three locations on the Baltic coast as potential sites for Poland's first nuclear plant. Zarnowiec, Choczewo and Gaski are the three locations and these locations have been chosen from among 92 locations analyzed by PGE. However, a final decision on the location yet to be made.
In September 2012, PGE Polska Grupa Energetyczna, TAURON Polska Energia, KGHM Polska Miedz and Enea signed a letter of intent to cooperate on the project. These four companies have formed a special purpose vehicle (SPV) named "PGE EJ 1 sp. z o.o", which is responsible for preparing the investment process and construction of the first nuclear power plant in Poland.
PGE EJ 1 will carry out all technical, technological, organizational, formal and legal activities leading to the construction of the project.
The four companies are concerning the purchase of equity in a company (SPV) created to construct and operate the nuclear power plant. However, the size of the stakes that each company holds in the SPV is yet not finalized.
On February 7, 2013, a consortium of Worley Parsons Nuclear Services JSC, Worley Parsons International Inc., Worley Parsons Group Inc. was awarded the contract to provide services related to site characterization, licensing and permitting for the development.
In October 2013, the project was placed on hold.
In January 2014, PGE revived the project and is looking for technology and financial partners for the project.
In July 2014, AMEC was appointed as the engineering consultant for the project and WYG as the sub-consultant for AMEC. The scope of work involves technical support services including contract administration, engineering support, licensing and permitting, management systems, site infrastructure, quality assurance and, vendor and supply chain oversight.
In April 2015, the Study Consultant contract of Worley Parsons was terminated and the study activities will be undertaken by PGE itself.
As of October 2015, the project is facing opposition.
In November 2015, GE-Hitachi Nuclear Energy Americas, Korea Electric Power Corporation, SNC-Lavalin Nuclear Inc, Westinghouse Electric Company and Areva have expressed interest to construct the plant and to supply reactor technology for the project.
Final design and permits for the first were expected to be ready in 2018. Construction works are expected to be completed in 2022.
The project involves the construction of a 6,000MW nuclear power plant at Baltic Coast in Poland.
