Poland’s planned nuclear power plant notes high interest from potential suppliers

Polish state-owned special purpose company Polskie Elektrownie Jądrowe (PEJ) announced on Friday (3 November) that over 150 representatives from 70 Polish companies participated in a “Supplier Day, co-organised by PEJ and US companies Westinghouse Electric Company and Bechtel last week. 

The procurement process related to the construction of the first nuclear power plant in Poland, as well as the requirements facing companies interested in participating in this project, were the main topics discussed during the conference.

During the first day of the conference, discussions also revolved around the mechanisms employed by the Westinghouse-Bechtel consortium in selecting subcontractors for the implementation of the nuclear power plant. Special attention was paid to requirements regarding the need to apply appropriate codes and technical standards.

The second day of the conference was dedicated to individual discussions between representatives of the Westinghouse-Bechtel consortium and entrepreneurs from the Pomeranian Voivodeship, where the power plant is planned to be built. In total, over 120 meetings took place, during which the local business owners presented the activity profiles of their companies and discussed the scope of tenders, requirements and work deadlines.

High attendance on the first day and the “intensity” of the second day indicated “immense interest” of Pomerania-based companies in participating in the supply chain for the nuclear power plant’s construction, PEJ said in a press release.
