The agreement enables international collaboration between Laurentis and Synthos Green Energy, beginning with early project planning.

Based in Canada and with operations in Europe, Laurentis is a wholly-owned commercial subsidiary of Ontario Power Generation (OPG) and a full-scale SMR service provider.

Synthos Green Energy, together with its partner PKN ORLEN S.A., the largest multi-energy company in Central Europe, has established the joint venture (JV) company OSGE which plans to deploy a fleet of GE Hitachi BWRX-300 SMRs in Poland, targeting the first to be in operation by the end of this decade.
“Based on Ontario’s experience with the BWRX-300 project to date, Laurentis is well positioned to provide expertise and support for SMR development in Poland”said Dominique Minière, President of Laurentis Energy Partners.
“The fact that the BWRX-300 technology has been chosen by experienced utilities from Canada – the country with decades of experience in nuclear business – confirms that we have made the right decisions and that we are on the right track,” said Rafał Kasprów, CEO of Synthos Green Energy and CEO of OSGE. “Working with Canadian entities, such as Laurentis Energy Partners, will allow us to learn from the first planned BWRX-300 deployments in the world, to accelerate project development in Poland”.added Rafał Kasprów
