A selection of the appropriate site is one of the key conditions to provide a secure operation of the power plant and to limit to a minimum its impact on the lives of the neighbouring residents and the environment. Polskie Elektrownie Jądrowe sp. z o.o. has continued the site investigation and environmental assessment which will determine in what way the NPP will affect the surrounding environment and human health (environmental assessment) and how the environmental conditions may affect the security of the power plant operation (site investigation). The analyses are conducted at two sites: “Lubiatowo-Kopalino” and “Żarnowiec”, situated in the Choczewo, Gniewino and Krokowa communes in the Pomerania province. The analyses will serve as the basis for the Environmental Impact Assessment Report and Location Report.

The objective of environmental assessment is to determine the impact of the project on the environment at the stage of NPP preparation, construction, operation and decommissioning. The aim of the site investigation is to obtain data to assess the area from the point of view of its suitability for the NPP siting, including a verification of factors that exclude the area based on nuclear safety requirements (existence of the so-called fatal flaw).

The work is performed by the Company in cooperation with the Technical Advisor.
