Poland’s Minister of Climate and Environment Anna Moskwa announced that a training center for nuclear energy will be established in Warsaw and will begin operations this year.

The center’s activities are to be coordinated by the U.S. Department of Energy and by the Polish Ministry of Climate and Environment. The final Polish-American negotiations are ongoing for the creation of the Clean Energy Training Center.

Moskwa explained that the center’s mission will be to train the necessary staff for nuclear projects in Poland and Central and Eastern Europe, based on both large and small reactors.

The center will support postgraduate study programs and will also provide specialized training for companies already operating in the market. The center will also offer training for individuals, engineers, and courses related to project management.

“Thanks to the center, we will build the competencies that we will primarily need for large-scale nuclear projects, but not only,” said the minister.

Moskwa reminded that the construction of the first nuclear power plant in Poland is set to begin in 2026. The first block of the power plant is expected to commence operations in 2033.

In December 2021, Polskie Elektrownie Jądrowe – PEJ (Polish Nuclear Power Plants), a company wholly owned by the Polish state treasury, selected the location of Lubiatowo-Kopalino in the Choczewo municipality on the Baltic Sea coast as the preferred site for the first Polish nuclear power plant, which will be based on Westinghouse’s AP1000 technology.
