WARSAW, Poland (AP) – Poland has handpicked the US government and Westinghouse to build the central European country’s first nuclear power plant, part of an effort to burn less coal and gain greater energy independence.
Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said on Twitter late Friday that Poland would use Westinghouse Electric Company’s “reliable, safe technology” for the plant in the Pomeranian province near the Baltic Sea coast. The exact location has yet to be determined.
