  • NuScale will construct its flagship VOYGR reactor by 2029 to power industrial processes in Poland.
  • The advanced nuclear company has made inroads in Europe, partnering with Romania and Estonia to bring carbon-free power online.
  • Private sector leadership like this will be key to bolstering energy security and lowering emissions.
