Japanese firms look to bid for Polish nuclear power plant

Japan’s Hitachi, Toshiba, and Mitsubishi are eyeing up bids to develop what will be Poland's first nuclear power plant.

A Polish treasury ministry statement quoted Japanese deputy economy, trade and industry minister Yosuke Takagi as making the comments after he met Poland's deputy treasury minister Zdzislaw Gawlik on Tuesday.

The project, expected to cost between $10bn and $15bn, was first proposed in 2009 as part of a drive to find alternatives to coal-fired power. Since then it has been delayed as falling power prices weakened its economic case and Japan's 2011 Fukushima nuclear accident hit public support.

Poland's state-controlled power utility PGE is the leader of a consortium of Polish firms formed to undertake the project.
