Tractebel, Laurentis Energy and Hatch join forces on SMRs

13 December 2023

Energy services provider Laurentis Energy Partners is joining forces with global engineering & consulting company Tractebel, and global management, consulting & engineering services company Hatch to develop a one-stop shop to support industrial small modular reactor (SMR) clients worldwide.

The three companies will leverage their combined skills, expertise, and experience to support clients looking to develop SMR projects. The partnership approach aims to help streamline processes, significantly reducing risks, and ensuring lessons learned are transferred from one project to the next. The alliance builds on Hatch and Tractebel’s previous cooperation agreement by including Laurentis, which has been leading the development of SMR projects across North America and Europe, forging partnerships with industry and other organisations.

“The global energy landscape is changing rapidly. With a growing demand for clean, safe, and reliable electricity, the investments being made in new nuclear development represent significant business potential that extend well beyond the nuclear industry, said Tractebel Chief Global Nuclear Officer Denis Dumont. “Together with Hatch and Tractebel, we can help heavy industry clients reach climate change goals by leveraging our individual and collective strengths to provide end-to-end solutions that bring nuclear energy projects to life.”

Jason Van Wart, President and CEO of Laurentis Energy Partners said the cooperation will be crucial to the construction of SMRs in Europe and in North America. “Tractebel will bring its international nuclear new build and design authority experience to the alliance. By summoning our strengths, we can build bridges between the North American and European energy ecosystems to accelerate the energy transition through SMR technologies.”
