Mr Guibourgé-Czetwertyński emphasised that Poland is looking for a partner involved in all the stages of building nuclear power plants in our country.

South Korea has declared its willingness to participate in the Polish nuclear program through the state-owned concern KHNP. Poland is striving to base the entire Nuclear Power Program on one selected reactor technology.

“We want to obtain a comprehensive offer from a potential partner, that will include the provision of technology, financing and assuming joint responsibility for the entire project. We expect a stable and long-term partnership throughout the entire life cycle of the nuclear power plant,” Minister Guibourgé-Czetwertyński said.

The officials also talked about hydrogen technology. As noted by the Deputy Minister of Climate, Poland aims to produce hydrogen, distribute it in an efficient and safe manner, and create a stable regulatory environment. “Hydrogen will help us achieve not only climate neutrality, but also maintain the competitiveness of the Polish economy,” the Polish deputy minister said.

Representatives of the Polish and South Korean governments declared their willingness to continue talks about nuclear energy, hydrogen and electromobility in the near future.
