Polish copper giant signs deal with US firm for small nuclear reactors

On 24 September, EurActiv reported that KGHM had signed a MoU with NuScale Power of the US for the development of at least 4 small nuclear reactors to power its plants.  KGHM is one of the world’s biggest copper and silver producers and is the second largest consumer of electricity in Poland, which is the most coal-reliant country in the EU.  Several Polish companies have signalled an interest in small nuclear reactor technology in recent months.  The global nuclear industry is increasingly focusing its attention on small modular reactors (SMR), shifting away from bigger, more powerful structures.
