Krzysztof Tchórzewski said in a media interview that preparations were in progress to go ahead with the project at a site in the north of the country.

Tchórzewski told public broadcaster Polish Radio that a nuclear power plant was more expensive to build but far cheaper to operate than a conventional coal-fired facility of the same capacity.

He also said that Poland's energy policy to 2040 generated a lot of interest when it was discussed at the 11th European Economic Congress in the southern Polish city of Katowice.
