Bechtel, which is overseeing the design and construction of Poland’s first nuclear power plant alongside Westinghouse Electric Company, has awarded the first procurement contracts for its construction.

Bechtel will deliver three AP1000 reactors for Polskie Elektrownie Jądrowe at the Lubiatowo-Kopalino site in Pomerania, with the plant expected to cost around US$20 billion.

All three of the first procurement contracts will go to Polish suppliers. They include:

  • Energoproject – Katowice, a design and engineering company that will provide services for codes and standards, environmental permitting strategy, and supporting permitting documentation.
  • Prochem – a Poland-based company that will be provided opportunities for supporting documentation.
  • Summa Linguae Technologies – a company that builds technology-enabled solutions to help companies with multi-lingual data challenges.

Jared DeMeritt, Bechtel project manager, said, “Bechtel has been at the forefront of delivering nuclear power for 70 years, and one of the most important lessons we have learned is that partnerships at the local level are critical to a project’s success.”
