Polish Government issues decision in principle on Rolls-Royce SMRs

20 May 2024

Poland’s Ministry of Climate and Environment has issued a Decision in Principle endorsing Rolls-Royce Small Modular Reactor (SMR) technology. Rolls-Royce SMR and SGP Industria have welcomed the Decision in Principle issued by Poland’s Environment Minister, Paulina Hennig-Kloska, who has said she believes the investment would be in the public interest and in line with the country’s energy and climate policies.

The Decision in Principle comes just weeks after statements of support were issued by several Polish Government departments, all agreeing that an investment in Rolls-Royce SMR’s factory built nuclear power plants would have a “positive impact”.

Alan Woods, Rolls-Royce SMR’s Director of Strategy and Business Development, said: “Today’s Decision in Principle by Poland’s Environment Minister is extremely positive news and allows us to advance our commercial and technical discussions on the deployment of Rolls-Royce SMR power plants in Poland.

“Poland is one of a number of key export opportunities for Rolls-Royce SMR as we look to build on our progress in the UK and exploit the important competitive advantage our SMR design has over its competitors.”

Rolls-Royce SMR is currently on track to complete Step 2 of Generic Design Assessment by the UK nuclear industry’s independent regulators this summer.
