Development of small modular reactor technology.

In line with its strategy and ambitions to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050, the ORLEN Group invests in low- and zero-carbon, stable and innovative power generation capacities.

The establishment of ORLEN Synthos Green Energy was cleared by the Office of Competition and Consumer Protection (UOKiK) in March 2022. The company is tasked with preparing and commercialising micro modular reactor (MMR) and small modular reactor (SMR) technologies in Poland, which are among the most efficient, affordable and safe energy generation technologies. The project is an important contribution to ORLEN’s energy diversification efforts that will help enhance energy security and independence for Poland and the wider region.

SMRs are a technology solution that would open up an array of potential synergies for PKN ORLEN. Given the directions of its business growth and investment strategy so far, focused, among other things, on fast-paced expansion of the offshore wind power and solar PV business, SMRs could be a carbon-free alternative to the ORLEN Group’s existing power generation assets.
