    Tractebel and NRG|PALLAS Join Forces to Support Nuclear New-Build in the Netherlands

    March 20, 2023 - Gulf Oil & Gas


      Tractebel and NRG|PALLAS signed a Memorandum of Understanding to cooperate to support the new-build of nuclear power plants in the Netherlands. The signing was held at the Embassy of Belgium in The Hague in the presence of the Belgian Ambassador Her Excellency Mrs Anick van Calster - on the sidelines of the Belgium - Netherlands Nuclear Summit.

      Tractebel and NRG|PALLAS are partnering to provide engineering services, for the realisation of large nuclear power plants in the Netherlands.

      In 2022, the Dutch government announced its commitment to facilitate the construction of two large nuclear power plants in Borssele, to be operational by 2035. As the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate, and international players make the initial preparations for this effort, there is a need to employ broad, deep and local nuclear expertise – to realise Dutch ambitions.

      Both Tractebel and NRG|PALLAS are uniquely positioned to provide such expertise. Tractebel has over 60 years of experience in nuclear engineering and acts as Owner’s Engineer for the PALLAS research reactor. It has also contributed to the construction of nuclear power plants worldwide including in Sweden, the United Kingdom, South Africa and Brazil. Both firms have the capabilities and skills to support the conception, specification, design, licensing, operation, lifetime extension and decommissioning of nuclear installations. Jointly, Tractebel and NRG|PALLAS form the ideal team to provide the requisite engineering services that will contribute to the nuclear new build programme in the Netherlands.

      “I am convinced that cooperation is a key element in realising such an ambitious project. Tractebel has an excellent track record in the field of nuclear engineering. Together, with our competences in nuclear consultancy and our experience as a project management organisation, Tractebel and NRG|PALLAS form a complete set of capabilities. From the initial feasibility study towards contract management and operational readiness Tractebel and NRG|PALLAS possess a full capacity to facilitate the ambitious plan of the Dutch Government.” Bertholt Leeftink, CEO NRG|PALLAS

      “Joining forces with major Dutch nuclear players will give our company the opportunity to contribute further to nuclear new-build initiatives in the country. We are convinced that summoning our multidisciplinary expertise with NRG|PALLAS’ skills and extensive local market knowledge will be key to successfully delivering new nuclear projects in the Netherlands.” Denis Dumont, Chief Global Nuclear Officer, Tractebel
