Poland – The Legnica Special Economic Zone (LSEZ) in Poland and DB Energy have signed a Letter of Intent with US small modular reactor (SMR) developer Last Energy to build a 200 MWe power plant using ten SMRs.
A power purchase agreement by LSEZ with a minimum term of 24 years is also included in the agreement.
The offer from Last Energy includes all aspects of the investment process, such as design, construction, financing, service, and decommissioning, while DB Energy will be in charge of integrating the infrastructure of the power plant and the final consumers.
Last Energy’s SMR technology is based on a pressurized water reactor with a 20 MWe or 60 MWt capacity. Off-site construction and module assembly would be used to construct the power plants. After the final investment decision, a reactor is anticipated to be put together in less than 24 months.
