Rolls-Royce has signed a memorandum of intent with Polish industrial group, Industria, to collaborate on the deployment of small modular reactors (SMRs) in Poland.
Industria has selected Rolls-Royce SMR technology to fulfil the zero-emission energy goals of the
Central Hydrogen Cluster in Poland, and as part of their plans to produce 50,000 tonnes of low carbon hydrogen every year.
Tom Samson, Rolls-Royce SMR Chief Executive Officer, said: “Poland is one of the key industrial markets for our factory-built nuclear power plant which provides 470MW of clean, affordable electricity from a sustainable source.
“This partnership has enormous potential and could support thousands of high-skilled, long-term jobs in Poland and the UK – both directly and in the supply chain.”
Cezariusz Lesisz, President of the Board of Industrial Development Agency JSC, commented: “Building new competencies of Polish industry is part of a trend of focusing on energy transition and strengthening our country’s energy security and resilience.”
