The construction of the first small nuclear reactors (SMR) in Poland may start a year or two after the start of such an investment by the Canadian company Ontario Power Generation (OPG), i.e. in 2026-2027, the president of Synthos Green Energy, Rafał Kasprów, said.

“I see no reason why we should not start construction in Poland one or two years later, assuming a favorable regulatory environment,” Kasprów emphasized in an interview with ISBnews.

As he added, as part of public consultations, Synthos Green Energy, together with a group of advisers, developed and presented to the Ministry of Climate and Environment (MKiŚ) a proposal for changes in the nuclear law that would improve and facilitate the licensing and construction process of such installations.

"It is difficult for the regulations to treat 1 GW large reactors and 15 MW microreactors identically," he explained.

Synthos Green Energy also plans to build a pilot installation for the production of green hydrogen from high-temperature steam at the Synthos plant in Oświęcim, for approximately €32-34 million.

"We presented a project for the construction of an installation with a capacity of 1,400 tonnes of hydrogen per year under the Important Projects of Common European Interest (IPCEI) program," Kasprów said.
