Poland requires state support to build nuclear plant, PM says

The prime minister of Poland says the country will need support from the state if it is to build its long-in-the-making 3,000 MW nuclear power plant, Reuters reports.

Prime Minister Donald Tusk said Tuesday he publicly suppors comments made by the CEO of Poland’s top utility, PGE, indicating that the projected $15 billion project would be impossible without state support.

"I don't intend to burden only one company, even as big as PGE, with this project,” he said. The project was originally slated to open by 2030 but is already behind schedule, after PGE failed to meet a deadline in March to sign a cost-sharing agreement on the project with three other state controlled firms, according to the paper.
