Regulatory approval puts Ontario utility one step closer to building SMR nuclear project

Regulatory approval puts Ontario utility one step closer to building SMR nuclear project

The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission is renewing Ontario Power Generation’s license for a project eventually building a small modular reactor at its Darlington site. The 10-year license allows OPG to do work aimed at preparing the site for construction of a future SMR nuclear plant, called the Darlington New Nuclear Project. Darlington (pictured) also is the site of a current, […]
French leader: nation’s 30B clean energy plan requires SMR nuclear, green hydrogen and EVs

French leader: nation’s 30B clean energy plan requires SMR nuclear, green hydrogen and EVs

If France is truly going to be a leader in the age of decarbonization, President Emmanuel Macron said Tuesday, it must invest in and embrace small nuclear energy and green hydrogen by the start of the next decade. Macron, in laying his country’s Innovation Plan, stressed that investment of 1 billion Euros ($1.2B U.S.) in small-scale nuclear is needed by […]
Doosan Heavy leading testing study for X-energy’s 80-MW SMR nuclear reactor design

Doosan Heavy leading testing study for X-energy’s 80-MW SMR nuclear reactor design

South Korean power infrastructure firm Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction will partner with U.S.-based X-energy on developing and designing tests for advanced high temperature gas-cooled reactor (HTGR) technologies. The move will diversify Doosan Heavy’s work in the small modular reactor field. Although none have been constructed and commissioned yet, many feel that SMR nuclear technologies are promising due to the […]
Xcel Energy, NuScale considering utility to operate future SMR nuclear plants

Xcel Energy, NuScale considering utility to operate future SMR nuclear plants

A developer of the nation’s first small modular reactor (SMR) design approved by federal regulators plans to partner with a utility to operate its next-gen nuclear power plants once built. NuScale Power has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Xcel Energy to explore feasibility of Xcel serving as its SMR plant operator. Oregon-based NuScale has received U.S. Nuclear Regulatory […]
NuScale Power seeking capital as it plans commercialization of SMR nuclear

NuScale Power seeking capital as it plans commercialization of SMR nuclear

Small modular reactor developer NuScale Power is exploring the next level of financing needed to accelerate commercialization of its next-gen nuclear technology. Oregon-based NuScale has retained Guggenheim Securities as its advisor on attracting capital to help it commercialize deployment of its SMR offering. The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission has approved the NuScale design. “We are incredibly excited by the opportunities […]
Fluor, NuScale providing SMR nuclear services for Carbon-Free Power Project

Fluor, NuScale providing SMR nuclear services for Carbon-Free Power Project

U.S. engineering, procurement and construction firm Fluor will provide its services for Utah Associated Municipal Power Systems’ Carbon-Free Power Project. Texas-based Fluor was awarded a contract for estimating, development, design and engineering services on the project actually located in Idaho. The project includes plans for nuclear energy featuring NuScale’s small modular reactor design. Fluor and NuScale Power have been partners […]
NuScale signs MOU to bring SMR nuclear reactor technology to Ukraine

NuScale signs MOU to bring SMR nuclear reactor technology to Ukraine

NuScale Power and Ukrainian nuclear researchers will collaborate on developing NuScale’s small modular reactor designs for that nation’s energy sector. Ukraine’s State Scientific and Technical Center for Nuclear and Radiation Safety (SSTC NRS) signed a memorandum of understanding with NuScale. The MOU ceremony in NuScale’s home city of Portland, Oregon, was attended by Ihor Shevchenko, director of SSTC NRS, Hryhorii […]
NRC says TVA can consider SMR nuclear energy site at Clinch River

NRC says TVA can consider SMR nuclear energy site at Clinch River

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission this month approved the Tennessee Valley Authority’s early-site permit for potentially putting a small modular nuclear reactor at its Clinch River site. The TVA is the first utility nationally to receive NRC approval for an early site permit related to small modular reactors. The 20-year permit would allow TVA to begin planning on whether to […]
ARC Canada completes early regulator phase for SMR nuclear design

ARC Canada completes early regulator phase for SMR nuclear design

A Canadian firm focused on the next generation of smaller, more adaptable nuclear reactors cleared a major hurdle with the nation’s regulators. ARC Nuclear Canada Inc. announced it had successfully completed the first phase of vendor design review by the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission. The regulators provide detailed feedback on requirements for a nuclear power plant in Canada. The successful […]
