Hatch Laurentis Energy Partners and Tractebel to develop nuclear technology solutions

December 7, 2023

Brussels, Belgium – Hatch, Tractebel and leading energy services provider Laurentis Energy Partners will work together, combining talent and decades of expertise, to develop a one-stop shop to support industrial small modular reactor (SMR) clients worldwide. 

This alliance builds on Hatch and Tractebel’s previously announced cooperation agreement to include Laurentis Energy Partners (Laurentis), which has been leading the development of SMR projects across North America and Europe, by forging partnerships with industry and other organizations. 

Together, the three companies will leverage their combined skills, expertise, and experience to support clients looking to develop SMR projects. The partnership approach will ultimately help streamline processes, significantly reducing risks, and ensuring lessons learned are transferred from one project to the next. 

Key Facts

  • SMRs can range from 1 megawatt (MW) to approximately 300 MW. High-temperature SMRs could be deployed for industrial use, to reduce emissions and provide much-needed high-temperature heat and steam to heavy industries. 
  • Industries including chemical, oil and gas, steel-making and other mining and metals industries could use SMRs, which offer greater scalability and siting flexibility for locations unable to accommodate more traditional larger reactors.

“We are pleased to collaborate with Laurentis and Tractebel. Our collective experience creates a win-win for nuclear and industrial clients interested in leveraging nuclear to decarbonize, as well as for our communities and our climate.  We believe that nuclear will be instrumental in the energy transformation and in achieving our global net zero goals, including the decarbonization of heavy industries,” says Amar Jolly, Global Director Nuclear, Hatch


“Hatch, Laurentis and Tractebel’s cooperation will be crucial to the construction of small modular reactors in Europe and in North America. We are honoured to cooperate with these two major partners that have strong roots in the North American industrial and nuclear markets.  says Denis Dumont, Chief Global Nuclear Officer, Tractebel.


“The global energy landscape is changing rapidly.” said Jason Van Wart, President and CEO of Laurentis Energy Partners. “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.”
