Fortum has signed an agreement with Westinghouse Electric Company for the design, licensing and supply of a new type of fuel for the Loviisa NPP in Finland. The new fuel type is based on British Nuclear Fuel Limited’s fuel that was supplied to the Loviisa plant from 2001 to 2007, and used in parallel with the fuel supplied by the Russian TVEL in the early 2000s. Taking the new fuel into use is a multi-year project requiring regulatory approvals.

The Polish cabinet officially confirmed in a resolution yesterday the selection of US-based Westinghouse Electric Company for the construction of the country’s first nuclear power station near its Baltic Sea coastline.

Polish climate and environment minister Anna Moskwa told a press briefing that three Westinghouse-made AP1000 pressurised water reactor units will be deployed at the Lubiatowo-Kopalino site in the northern province of Pomerania (Pomorze).

The first unit is scheduled to be online in 2033 as set in Warsaw’s 2020 nuclear energy programme while the start of construction is earmarked for 2026.

“Poland has never been so close to building a nuclear power plant as it is today,” Ms Moskwa said and added that “the decision to confirm a strategic partnership with the US brings us closer to the implementation of this project.”
