Poland SMR GEH
Poland's Richest Man to Work With GE Hitachi on Mini Nuclear Plant

WARSAW — Synthos, a chemical group owned by Poland's richest man Michal Solowow, has agreed to work with GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy on developing technology for a small modular reactor (SMR), Hitachi said on Monday.
...Polish financial newspaper Puls Biznesu quoted Solowow saying the Synthos and GE Hitachi joint project to build a 300 megawatts (MW) SMR unit will be completed in the next 10 years with capital spending expected at below $1 billion.
...Poland plans to build its first traditional nuclear power plant over the next 20 years but is struggling to work out a financing model for the project. Some government officials were quoted as saying earlier this year that Poland could also develop small modular reactors, but a specific plan has not so far been set out.
...Small modular reactors can play a significant role in addressing Poland's energy challenges, the modernization of the nation's energy sector and in achieving necessary and responsible deep decarbonization," Solowow said in the statement.
..."It is not so easy to switch onto renewable energy sources and nuclear energy is an alternative which might be used," Poland's Finance Minister Jerzy Kwiecinski told public radio on Tuesday.
