GEH Nuclear And Synthos For A Potential SMR In Poland

GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy and Synthos Green Energy have begun discussions with Poland’s National Atomic Energy Agency (PAA) about a potential BWRX-300 small modular reactor project.

In October 2019, Synthos and GEH signed a cooperation agreement that is focused on development and deployment of the BWRX-300.

In addition to GEH, Exelon Generation, Fortum and CMS Legal in Warsaw are supporting Synthos in this process.

–  With our design-to-cost approach, we believe the BWRX-300 is ideally positioned to help SGE and Poland meet the demand for clean, stable and affordable energy – said Jon Ball, Executive Vice President of Nuclear Products for GEH – We look forward to supporting SGE as it considers deploying this game-changing technology to meet the energy needs of its operations and help Poland achieve its goals for decarbonization – added John Ball.

The BWRX-300 is a 300-MW water-cooled, natural circulation SMR with passive safety systems.

It is currently being analysed by nuclear regulators in the United States and Canada.
