According to Józef Sobolewski, director of the ministry’s nuclear energy department, “different ownership structures” are being analysed.

"We have several models, but we have yet to make the final decision," he said on Wednesday.

Sobolewski suggested that Poland’s first nuclear power plant would be built using domestic financing.

He also said: "We don’t want the project to be dominated by the financial markets. It's not a financial project; it's an energy project.”

Energy Minister Krzysztof Tchórzewski said last week that the government was in “advanced talks” with local communities to choose the location for a nuclear power plant.

He added that two sites were being considered where such a plant could be built.

Poland’s first nuclear power plant is likely to take nine to 10 years to build once the final decision is made to go ahead with the project, according to Tchórzewski. (gs)
