France will start building its first new nuclear reactors in decades as part of efforts to meet its promises to reduce planet-warming emissions, French President Emmanuel Macron announced Tuesday.
Following a successful equity raise, Rolls-Royce has established its Small Modular Reactor (SMR) business aimed at scaling the next generation of low carbon nuclear power technology.
Small modular nuclear reactors could play an important role in decarbonizing power grids and meeting climate goals set by the Paris Agreement, according to a new report.
The cost of two nuclear reactors being built in Georgia is now $28.5 billion, more than twice the original price tag, and the other owners of Plant Vogtle argue Georgia Power Co. has triggered an agreement requiring Georgia Power to shoulder a larger share of the financial burden.
Georgia Power has pushed back the in-service dates for its troubled Vogtle Units 3 and 4 expansion project—the first new nuclear power plant construction to be completed in years—by maybe another quarter or more. The utility originally had hoped to make Unit 3 commercial operational by this year, but numerous cost overruns and construction problems have caused more delays. Now, […]
Exelon Generation will utilize a $50 million federal cost-share award to fully digitalize the control room at its Limerick Generating Station in Pennsylvania. Once completed, the Limerick plant would be the first fully digital safety system upgrade at a U.S. nuclear power facility. Exelon will spend $42 million while the U.S. Department of Energy will kick in the $50 million. […]
Nuclear equipment firm BWXT’s Canadian subsidiary is partnering with GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy on an engineering and procurement deal to support design and manufacturing of a small modular nuclear reactor. The agreement would facilitate development work on the BWRX-300 SMR. The projected model is a 300-MW water-cooled reactor and is the 10th evolution of the boiling water reactor design. The […]
French energy company EDF has submitted an offer to the Polish government to supply between four and six European Pressurized Reactors (EPR). This preliminary offer covers a total installed capacity of 6.6 to 9.9GWe across two to three sites and includes all programme parameters such as plant configuration, cost estimate and schedule. The offer aims to establish a Polish-French strategic […]
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, […]
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 […]
