The West Pomeranian University of Technology in Szczecin, the Azoty Police Group and Ultra Safe Nuclear have signed an agreement on the construction of the MMR reactor. A research programme and plan for the construction and operation of the 30 MWt MMR plant will be developed in the next six months.
The reactor will serve as a training, research and testing facility. It will be connected to the energy infrastructure of Grupa Azoty Police, providing a unique opportunity to research, test, optimise and integrate a zero-carbon MMR energy source into an industrial facility.
The cooperation will allow the development of a plan for full-scale implementation of the use of nuclear energy for chemical processes and the generation of steam and hydrogen at Azoty Police Group facilities.
The agreement also envisages the possibility of organising training courses for students of the West Pomeranian University of Technology, including the possibility of conducting practical applied research related to the production of clean MMR energy.
