GE Hitachi Nuclear expands in Poland, prepares for new nuclear plants

Wilmington, N.C., July 27, 2011 — With Poland evaluating two GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy reactor models for the country's first nuclear power plant projects, GEH signed a memorandum of understanding with Warsaw-based engineering firm Energoprojekt Warszawa, S.A. to discuss the feasibility of partnering on future reactor projects.

The MOU with Energoprojekt Warszawa is the latest in a series of preliminary agreements that GEH has signed with Polish suppliers as the government prepares to develop Poland's first two nuclear generating stations to diversify the country's energy supplies.

Under the new MOU, both companies will explore how EW could provide specific engineering services to GEH for the potential development of new nuclear power plants in Poland.

Polish utility Polska Grupa Energetyczna S.A. is still considering several reactor designs for the projects and Poland's government expects to begin construction of its first nuclear power plant in 2016 and has targeted 2020 as the commercial date of operation for the first plant.
