Rolls-Royce and ULC-Energy to collaborate on SMR for The Netherlands

30 August 2022

Rolls-Royce SMR has signed an exclusive agreement with the Dutch development company ULC-Energy to collaborate on deploying Rolls-Royce Small Modular Reactor power stations in the Netherlands. By signing the agreement, the parties have formalised their alignment and will be working closely together to advance application of this technology solution over coming years.

The Rolls-Royce SMR has been selected by ULC-Energy as its SMR technology provider of choice. The R-R SMR is a modular design – 90% of the 470 MW unit is built in factory conditions, limiting on-site activity primarily to assembly of pre-fabricated, pre-tested, modules which is intended to significantly reduce project risk, and has the potential to drastically shorten build schedules. 

Dirk Rabelink of ULC-Energy commented: “Challenging energy market conditions, particularly in Western Europe, have clarified the importance of having reliable and affordable energy systems. The Dutch government believes that nuclear can and should play a meaningful role in The Netherlands.”
