“Investors are needed for around $30bn, but this money would be provided over 20 years”, Mr Tchorzewski told reporters, adding the whole investment was estimated at around $60bn.
Poland launched a national nuclear power programme in 2014 which included the construction of up to 6 GW of capacity by 2035, but the government has been delaying a final decision on the programme since taking over in 2015.
A draft energy strategy called for construction of Poland’s first nuclear unit by 2033 and another five or six by 2043.
Government sources have said Poland will be aiming at a possible 6% nuclear share in the early to mid-2030s and a 15-20% nuclear share by 2050, although this would depend on a final decision about the nuclear programme and its financing.
Poland is reluctant to finance the construction of nuclear power stations with debt. Instead, it wants a model based on capital.
