ULC-Energy secures cooperation from Constellation

20 September 2022

Dutch company ULC-Energy has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with US-based Constellation to support the deployment of Rolls-Royce Small Modular Reactor (SMR) power stations in the Netherlands. Constellation and ULC-Energy intend to join forces to accelerate the Netherlands’ transition to a clean, affordable, and reliable energy system by deploying a fleet of Rolls-Royce small modular reactors.

ULC-Energy is a nuclear project development company focused specifically on SMRs. Constellation operates 21 commercial nuclear reactors at 12 nuclear sites in the USA. Constellation is a minority shareholder in Rolls-Royce SMR Limited.

Ralph Hunter, President of Constellation Generation Development, said: “The Constellation Nuclear Management Model is widely regarded within the industry as a benchmark for world-class nuclear power operations, and we are excited with the opportunity to work with both ULC-Energy and Rolls-Royce SMR to ensure the safe and reliable development and operation of Rolls-Royce SMRs in the Netherlands.”

Dirk Rabelink, Managing Director of ULC-Energy said: “Constellation will bring deep operational experience to ULC-Energy allowing ULC-Energy to deliver a complete offering to its stakeholders in the Netherlands. Having worked closely with Constellation, and its predecessor Exelon Generation since 2005, I am confident that our cooperation will be fruitful.”
