ZCh Police have an agreement on the construction of a research MMR reactor with a capacity of 30 MW

Zakłady Chemiczne Police – a subsidiary of Grupa Azoty – Ultra Safe Nuclear Corporation (USNC) and the West Pomeranian University of Technology in Szczecin signed an agreement on the development and construction of a 30 MW nuclear power research facility equipped with MMR technology.

In the next six months, the parties will develop a comprehensive research program and jointly prepare a plan for the construction, operation and maintenance of the MMR installation, it was announced.

“The project assumes the construction of a 30 MW reactor and, at the same time, during the construction, staff training together with the West Pomeranian University of Technology. And there are very few such staff specializing in SMRs and MMRs. The agreement also provides for cooperation with other European universities. We want the schedule and value of this project to be worked out as soon as possible,” said Tomasz Hinc, President of Grupa Azoty, during the signing of the agreement.


“The project is an example of US support in the area of Poland’s energy independence. Together with our partner Hyundai Engineering Corporation, we fully support Grupa Azoty’s plans to reduce its carbon footprint and are pleased to offer the University of West Pomerania industrial research opportunities for our high-temperature microreactor,” said USNC CEO and founder Francesco Venneri, quoted in the release.
