EDF said the move confirms its long-term commitment to support the Polish nuclear ambition by proposing the development of four to six EPR units in the country.

EDF has appointed Thierry Deschaux as director of the new office. Mr Deschaux recently headed energy services provider Dalkia Polska, an EDF company, and has spent the last 14 years of his career in Poland at various posts in the EDF network of subsidiaries.

Poland wants to build from 6,000 to 9,000 MW of installed nuclear capacity based on large-scale, pressurised water nuclear reactors of Generation III and III+ designs. Commercial operation of a first nuclear reactor unit in a proposed set of six is planned for 2033.

The Swedish branch of US-based Westinghouse Electric Company has signed a contract with Ukraine’s state-owned nuclear operator Energoatom for the preparation and delivery of licensing documentation for the introduction of VVER-440 fuel assemblies at the Rovno-2 nuclear power unit in western Ukraine.

Westinghouse and Energoatom signed a contract in September 2020 for the supply of VVER-440 nuclear fuel for the Rovno nuclear power station, which has two VVER-440 and two VVER-1000 pressurised water reactor units in commercial operation.

Energoatom said the Westinghouse-made fuel needs to be licensed under Ukrainian local regulations before it can be used at VVER-440 reactors in the country.
