25 Jul (NucNet): Nuclear operator China General Nuclear Power Corporation (CGN) has held discussions with the Polish government about potentially becoming a partner and building Poland’s first commercial nuclear power plant. In a statement on 24 July 2017, CGN said talks took place with a Polish delegation headed by deputy minister of energy Andrzej Piotrowski in Shenzhen during a visit to China from 9 July to 15 July 2017. Mr Piotrowski also met his Chinese counterpart Li Fanrong in Beijing. CGN senior vice-president Shu Guogang said the company attached great importance to the Polish market and is “willing and confident of becoming a long-term strategic partner of Poland and helping with the localisation of nuclear technology”. The Polish delegation visited the Daya Bay nuclear station in southern China and the first indigenous Hualong One units under construction at the Fangchenggang nuclear station, also in southern China. Poland has not finalised its nuclear plans, but CGN said in its statement that Poland is planning two units.
