Poland Signs Deal With Korea to Build Second Nuclear Plant

  • Agreement part of Poland’s plans to cut use of fossil fuels
  • US lawsuit poses challenge to Korea’s nuclear export ambitions

Poland reached a deal with South Korea to develop the European nation’s second nuclear power plant, accelerating its efforts to become energy independent following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

Korea Hydro & Nuclear Power Co., a state-run nuclear plant operator, signed a letter of intent with Polish utilities PGE SA and ZE PAK SA on Monday, South Korea’s energy ministry said in a statement. The consortium will build several APR-1400 reactors near ZE PAK’s coal plants in Patnow.
