Poland Taps US Company for Nuclear Plant
October 31, 2022
The US company Westinghouse has been chosen by Poland to build the country’s first nuclear power plant, after rejecting several other foreign suitors. The plan aligns with Steven E. Aumeier and Todd Allen’s recommendation in Issues that the United States step up its involvement—indeed, regain its leadership—in this important global technology market. Ramping up engagement, the authors write, will bring the United States major strategic and economic returns and help shape a cost-effective future for domestic nuclear reactor construction, while also strengthening international nuclear security and safety.
