Poland's Ministry of Climate & Environment has issued a decision-in-principle for a second large NPP. Two South Korean-supplied APR1400 reactors are planned in the Patnów-Konin region of Wielkopolska province in central Poland. A positive decision by the Ministry of Culture & Higher Education makes it possible to start work at the site and confirms the compliance of the planned investment with the objectives of Poland's energy policy. According to the plan, the two reactors with a total installed capacity of 2,800 MWe will provide 22 TWh of energy annually, which corresponds to 12% of current electricity demand in Poland.
