Poland to launch nuclear tender within two months

WARSAW, March 14 (Reuters) - Poland's top utility PGE will launch a technology tender for the country's first nuclear power plant within two months, the company's Chief Executive Officer Wojciech Ostrowski said on Wednesday.

Coal-reliant Poland wants to start a 3 gigawatt station by early 2020s and double that capacity in 2030s.

Westinghouse, a U.S. unit of Japan's Toshiba, France's Areva and American-Japanese GE Hitachi are competing to provide technology for the plant. (Reporting by Maciej Onoszko, writing by Gabriela Baczynska; editing by James Jukwey)
