NuHub has partnered with Holtec International Inc. to compete for one of two federal grants from the U.S. Department of Energy for small modular reactor (SMR) development.
The $452 million DOE funding will support the engineering, design certification and licensing for up to two prototype SMR designs. Holtec has a 160 MW pressurized water reactor called the SMR-160 at the Savannah River Site (SRS).
NuHub earlier announced a similar agreement with NuScale Power LLC, and will support applications from both Holtec and NuScale for the DOE’s SMR program.
