Polish company Industria has partnered with the UK’s CVG to speed up development of Rolls-Royce’s SMR projects. 

Industria is hoping to use Rolls-Royce SMR’s technology to produce 50,000 tonnes of low-carbon hydrogen annually in Poland. Meanwhile, CVG was recently confirmed as the preferred bidder to take over the Gloucester Science & Technology Park from South Gloucestershire & Stroud College (SGSC). CVG plans to create a net-zero and nuclear technologies campus on the site of the Gloucester Science & Technology Park, including the use of Rolls-Royce SMR’s developing technologies.  

CVG has also partnered with Western Gateway, SGSC, the University of Bristol and Vital Energi on this development project. 

In a statement on Rolls-Royce’s website, Alan Woods, Rolls-Royce SMR’s director of strategy and business development, said: “This is an extremely positive step forward for Rolls-Royce SMR and we are delighted to see two of our close partners agree to collaborate on their efforts to bring our technology to fruition. 

“This is an exciting development. Both CVG and Industria are highly capable organisations, able to deliver low-carbon energy projects powered by Rolls-Royce SMRs. This announcement further opens the opportunity for CVG to support and enable Great British Nuclear (GBN) to deliver innovative technology by the early to mid-2030s.” 

Szczepan Ruman, president of the management board of Industria, added: “To achieve the goals of the Central Hydrogen Valley, we have chosen SMR technology developed by Rolls-Royce. Small modular reactors will produce stable, affordable, low-emission energy, powering the region’s industry and households for at least 60 years. However, to achieve this goal, we must provide significant financial resources. That is why we are glad that an experienced British institution – CVG – is starting cooperation with us aimed at building RR SMR units and related technologies that will provide future opportunities for employment development in Poland, Great Britain and internationally.”
