A coastal commune of Choczewo has been selected as the preferred site where the first Polish nuclear power plant is to be built. The site named “Lubiatowo-Kopalino” has been chosen on the basis of detailed site investigation and environmental surveys conducted since 2017, on a scale unprecedented in Poland, proving that the site meets all the environmental requirements set out for such facilities, and is safe for residents. Polskie Elektrownie Jądrowe will now apply for the necessary administrative decisions.
On 15 June 2021, an amendment to the Articles of Association of PGE EJ 1 was entered into the National Court Register (KRS). According to the present wording of the Articles of Association, the Company runs its business as Polskie Elektrownie Jądrowe spółka z ograniczoną odpowiedzialnością (Polish Nuclear Power Plants limited liability company), or PEJ sp. z o.o. for short. The new legal name is applicable as of the date of its registration in the KRS.
The Polish Cabinet passed a resolution updating the Polish Nuclear Power Program (PNPP). The document includes a schedule of the first nuclear power plant construction and determination of the PNPP scale.
