August 30, 2023 – Hatch and Tractebel have signed a cooperation agreement to deliver professional services toward advancing the use of nuclear “in the transition to a net-zero economy”.

Tractebel is a global engineering company based in Brussels, Belgium, with over 60 years of nuclear engineering experience in Europe. Headquartered in Mississauga, Ont., Hatch is a global engineering, project management, and professional services firm focused primarily in the energy, mining and metals, and infrastructure sectors.

“Hatch and Tractebel’s cooperation will be crucial to the construction of new nuclear assets,” said Denis Dumont, chief global nuclear officer, Tractebel. “We believe that by summoning up our strengths, we can build bridges between the North American and European energy ecosystems.”

The collaboration between these two companies aims to support the industrial and energy sector with the deployment of both small and large nuclear technologies in North America and Europe.

“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,” said Amar Jolly, global director, Nuclear, Hatch. “We will bring our strong nuclear systems, equipment design and waste management experience, as well as our deep knowledge of the industries that are likely to implement SMR [small modular reactor] to the collaboration.”
