Japan to export safer nuclear reactor to Poland

Public-private team faces competition from China and Russia

Japan's experimental high-temperature gas-cooled reactor.

TOKYO -- A Japanese consortium is looking to commercialize next-generation reactor technology in Poland by 2030, betting that proven expertise in safer and more cost-effective nuclear power will help to secure orders from around the world.

The Japan Atomic Energy Agency and companies including Toshiba, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries and Hitachi will take the lead on building a commercial high-temperature gas-cooled reactor after Japan and Poland sign an agreement on the matter, potentially at the start of next year. The two countries formed a partnership on HTGR technology in May.
