EDF announced in a press release that it will offer Engineering, Procurement, Construction (EPC) from four to six EPRs (European Pressurized Reactor) with a total installed capacity of 6.6-9.9 GW in two to three includes locations.
The French company indicated that its original offering included all of the key parameters of the program, such as installation configurations, industrial diagrams, local supply chain development plans, cost estimates and schedules.
Building each unit could create up to 25,000 jobs, according to EDF.
EFD said the offer supports the implementation of the objectives of the Polish Nuclear Power Program (PPEJ), which was adopted by the Polish government in October 2020.
It also aims to define the principles of the Polish-French strategic partnership that supports Poland’s ambitious energy transition plan in line with the European goal of carbon neutrality.
