Techno-Economic Assessment of Coal-Fired Power Unit Decarbonization Retrofit with KP-FHR Small Modular Reactors

April 29, 2021

This paper analyses the future of the existing Polish coal-fired power fleet and proposes retrofitting existing coal-fired units by replacing coal-fired boilers with small modular reactors.

The analysis focuses on the repowering of a 460 MW supercritical coal-fired unit in the Łagisza power plant with high temperature small modular nuclear reactors based on the 320MW design from Kairos.

The results show that retrofitting can reduce costs by up to 35% compared to greenfield investments and can be economically justified.
