Courtesy Office of the Polish President. Poland and the US concluded on Monday an “historic” cooperation agreement on the development of Warsaw’s nuclear energy programme, which could pave the way for using US technology and financing for the country’s first commercial nuclear power project.

In a virtual ceremony held in Warsaw and Washington, US energy secretary Dan Brouillette and Polish secretary of state for strategic energy infrastructure Piotr Naimski finalised the agreement, which had been in the making for a number of years.

It is the second major nuclear agreement the US has signed this month. Last week, Washington signed a draft cooperation agreement with Romania for the refurbishment of one nuclear power reactor and the construction of two more at the Cernavodă nuclear power station. The two countries also signed a memorandum of understanding for the financing of the Cernavodă project.

According to the US Department of Energy, the agreement with Poland stipulates that over the next 18 months, the US and Poland will work together on a report delivering “a design for implementing” Poland’s nuclear energy programme and “potential financing arrangements”.
