Synthos enters into cooperation with the National Center for Nuclear Research.

Synthos Green Energy enters into cooperation with the National Center for Nuclear Research. This may boost plans to to develop small modular nuclear reactors (SMR), at the expense of classic nuclear power units.

Synthos Green Energy, which, together with its partners, intends to develop small modular nuclear reactors (SMR) in Poland, has signed a letter of intent on cooperation with the National Center for Nuclear Research. This may increase the chances of popularizing this technology in Poland and hit hard to the plans to build classic nuclear power units.


Synthos Green Energy cooperates with the BWRX-300 technology provider, the American GE Hitachi, and acts as its main distributor in Poland. The key partners of the company belonging to one of the richest Poles, Michał Sołowow, are, among others fuel giant PKN Orlen and ZE PAK controlled by Zygmunt Solorz-Żak (both entities are listed on the Warsaw Stock Exchange).

The first SMR developed by Hitachi would be launched as early as 2029, but this date should rather be treated as indicative due to the need to certify the new technology in Europe. Polish regulations also remain messy. For several months, Synthos has been lobbying for supplementing the new nuclear law in Poland (the so-called special nuclear act) with small nuclear reactors. In the original version of the document, however, there were only references to classic generation 3+ objects. However, this may still change, if only in the context of a potential amendment to the new law, which will be adopted in Poland at the turn of February and March.
