GE Hitachi teams up with Fluor in Poland for new nuclear

US engineering giant Fluor has signed a memorandum of understanding with nuclear reactor vendor GE Hitachi (GEH) Nuclear Energy to compete for nuclear power plants in Poland.

The new consortium will be competing for selection by Poland’s power utility Polska Grupa Energetyczna when it formally opens bidding for a new nuclear power station in 2013.

GEH is a leading designer of boiling water reactor (BWR) technology nuclear reactor. Fluor has been operating in Poland with nearly 300 engineering staff in the country.

  • This shows how irrelevant and political many decisions are nowadays. Germany is abandoning nuclear power stations after tthe Japanese tsunami, for fear of nuclear polution, while their neighbour is considering new nuclear. What is the wind direction in that area of Europe? Where, in the, extremely unlikely, event of a nuclear incident, will pollution go?
