Rolls-Royce SMR has signed an exclusive agreement with Dutch development company, ULC-Energy, to work together to deploy Rolls-Royce Small Modular Reactors (SMR) in the Netherlands (link).
Commenting on the new partnership, Tom Greatrex, Chief Executive of the Nuclear Industry Association, said:
“This agreement marks a welcome return of British reactor technology to global markets. All over the world, nuclear is making a comeback, and we should use that to bring jobs and investment here to Britain.
“It’s also high time that we got on with deploying a fleet of Rolls Royce SMRs in this country, because we should have a UK-flagged technology to help guarantee our energy security and our industrial skills base for the future.”
